DrugNet Europe – the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addition newsletter – in its last edition, presents the E-Book “Professional Profile of the Outreach Worker” that was the main outcome of the PrOWfile project, that gathered 11 partners/organisations from different European Countries and was coordinated by APDES.
The E-book “Professional Profile of the Outreach Work in Harm Reduction” was launched at the PrOWfile Final Seminar , organised by APDES – Agência Piaget para o Desenvolvimento and is now available for download. The e-book includes the main activities, knowledges, skills and attitudes which are essential to the outreach worker professional performance. The E-book also includes practical examples from different working areas as well as diverse European overviews about the state of the art in outreach work in harm reduction.
The International Harm Reduction Conference will take place in Vilnius, Lithuania, from 9th to 12th of June 2013, organized by Harm Reduction International (HRI). APDES will be there and strengthen its participation through the organisation of the workshop “Strengthening Harm Reduction Workers and Values: Working Towards a European Profile of the Outreach Worker on Harm Reduction”, on June 11th at 17:30, which is based on the outcomes of PrOWfile project.
