Results for Health
Welcome to this new online educational resource for learning about addiction directly from people who have experienced it – ordinary people who developed alcohol and other drug problems and are now living full, happy and productive lives.
The resource is intended to help medical students and health professionals understand the psychological, social and cultural drivers of addiction, so that they feel better equipped to help those in need. We also hope that it will be a useful learning tool for anyone with an interest in recovery from addiction.
Our congratulations go to Kelby Smith-Han who recently completed his PhD - ‘Just a GP’: an exploration of undergraduate medical students’ discourses of General Practice.

Knowing Practice is a study of practice-based learning across different occupations. In the trades, practice-based learning is usually called “apprenticeship”. In information technology industries, it’s known as “cadetship”. In the later stages of formal learning in medicine, social work, and teaching, it’s “practicum” or vocational “immersion”.
Our aim is to understand the way in which practice-based learning operates across three different occupational fields:
