PAMS Education & Training.

 

Education and training is an important role of the PAMS Service.When buprenorphine-naloxone was implemented in Victoria, the PAMS Service delivered a number of training sessions targeted at alcohol and drug agency staff who worked closely with pharmacotherapy consumers. However, over the last five years, the demand for day to day service delivery from the PAMS client group has increased to such an extent that there is little time to devote to the delivery of pharmacotherapy education and training. We are hopeful that with more funding in the future and therefore more staff capacity, we will once again be able to devote time to the delivery of education and training.
