Developing a web-based Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ‘ice’ toolkit

Following widespread concerns about the use of methamphetamine and the release of the report of the National Ice Taskforce a number of resources have been, or are being, developed to disseminate up-to-date, evidence-based information about methamphetamine. A gap in this effort has been in the provision of information for the general Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population. This project, which is being conducted by a consortium of academic and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations aims to fill that gap.

The project will involve scoping of existing resources and identification of factsheets and information that are suitable for adaptation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Resources identified as suitable for adaptation during will be redesigned in consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders and communities. This redesign will incorporate updating of language, content and design. Additional fact pages will be developed to meet identified gaps in content. The website name, structure, content and visual concepts will be designed to align with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural identity and communication styles.
