Ruby's Dad children's book with guidelines for clinicians
16 August 2014
A children's book called Ruby's Dad with guidelines for clinicians on how to use Ruby's Dad as part of their work. It is for children aged 6-11 years whose parent or relative has a drinking problem. It is an honest, encouraging story to help children and families talk about alcohol and how it can affect family life.
These Guidelines replace the old Guidelines for Safe-zones and have been developed to help event organisers take a proactive, prevention-first approach and deliver safe events for patrons, from a whole-of-event perspective, to complement the emergency services provided by healthcare professionals. Event organisers can draw on its recommendations during their operational risk management planning for the event.
A tool that can be used to assist local alcohol planning, eg, local alcohol polices, development of alcohol strategies and alcohol control bylaws and specific alcohol-related issues such as outlet density or trading hours of licensed premises.
