The development of human resources, evidence base and quality standards in addictology (trans-disciplinary addiction science) in Georgia
Date du début: 1 déc. 2013,

The project aims to increase the potential of Georgia to pursue a modern, evidence-based drug policy and thus to tackle the acute problem of drug addiction and its negative consequences by means of developing and implementing MA and BA curricula and a lifelong learning framework in addictology (addiction science). The project substantially broadens the current medical scope of addiction treatment in Georgia with methodological and epistemiological perspectives of related disciplines (psychology, social work, law et al.). The project will develop human resources, building on the existing higher education capacities in Georgia and on an innovative, EU-based transdisciplinary approach.The project will train teachers for the MA and BA programme in addictology, BA level classes to other specialties, and lifelong learning courses for addictologists and other professionals that are servicing substance use agenda (psychologists, social workers, nurses, narcologists, lawyers). At the same time, it will provide a sustainable institutional environment by establishing: (i) a research and monitoring centre on drug situation; (ii) a framework of practical training and for lifelong learning, and (iii) quality standards in addictology services.The main tools of the project will be intense “training of Georgian trainers” in each of the areas of addictology, provided by EU experts based in Czech, Polish, and German universities. This will be done both on a continuous basis (one- or two-week courses in Georgia for future trainers) and at Summer Schools in Addictology organised at the EU universities in 2014 and 2015. The project will create a coherent environment for tackeling substance use problems in Georgia via quality education programmes, rigorous monitoring and research for evidence-based policy, and focus on quality standards in the newly established field of addictology, same as within the addictology services.
