ADOM implementation project
The Alcohol and Drug Outcome Measure (ADOM) is a brief outcome measure relevant to New Zealand alcohol and other drug (AOD) services.
In 2011 Te Pou was contracted by the Ministry of Health to develop and test collection protocols and training resources to support nationally consistent implementation of ADOM. The project collaborated with Matua Raki and an addiction sector advisory group to develop and test the resources.
To register your service's interest in implementing ADOM, please email us and we will help you get the process started.
ADOM progress update
Te Pou and Matua Raki have formed an ADOM implementation team whose role is to assist addiction services to implement ADOM.
Over the next year the ADOM implementation team will focus on:
- promoting interest and uptake of ADOM implementation in community based adult addiction services
- developing resources and disseminating information about ADOM to addiction managers and clinical leaders
- providing information about options for ADOM data collection and reporting systems
- providing train the trainer workshops for ADOM and follow up support for trainers through the Matua Raki and Te Pou websites.
Two key documents have been developed to provide information for services.
- ADOM Implementation Guide provides services with an overview of the key components and steps for implementing ADOM.
- ADOM Implementation - Information for Services and Key Stakeholders provides answers to a range of frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the ADOM tool, benefits of using the ADOM, technical aspects of ADOM, and implementing ADOM.
ADOM implementation project advisory group
The ADOM implementation project advisory group was established to ensure the project had clinical relevance and recognised addiction sector perspectives. Te Pou wishes to acknowledge the advisory group members and their contribution to the project.
