Screening and assessment tools
In December 2016, the Victorian Government Department of Health and Human Services engaged Turning Point to refresh the standard adult alcohol and drug screening and assessment tools developed in 2013. The project began with an initial sector wide online survey which informed an initial draft of the tools, which was further refined with sector consultation through a series of regional and metropolitan workshops.
The self-complete initial screen for AOD problems tool has been replaced with a Victorian AOD intake tool and the AOD comprehensive assessment now includes a self-completion form. These tools were rolled out mid-year 2017 with state-wide training in both metropolitan and regional locations.

Training and documentation
An interactive online orientation to the tools has been developed to provide guidance in how the modules can be used in clinical settings.
