Work and Achievements
Nada Peer education initiatives are important, and this approach has been adopted as a model for promoting NCD prevention and education of risk factors for those considered “hard to reach” such as young people, women and alcohol users under the supervision of social worker and community counselor continue to develop their roles as peer educators and leaders within the NCD early detection and prevention service, it is important that they receive counseling & training in communication, NCD its risk factors and family based educational program aims to meet need to engage patient before they accept this new identity of “patient” and promote informed choices. The involvement of a range of service providers in this peer-support project ensured that the project was inclusive and therefore representative of as many interested parties as possible. Other strengths of this pilot program were that it NCD affected and caregivers, whose support needs are often overlooked. These workshops and family meetings were well received and showed that there is a clear-cut need to offer similar programs to patients and caregivers to increase their education and knowledge regarding the effects of substance use by people with NCD problems. Furthermore, the results demonstrate that some negative attitudes toward this alcohol using population can be shifted. Responding to this need has the potential to reduce stigma and lead to better outcomes for patients with a NCDs and risk factor alcohol dependence. Finally, this program contributes to a range of peer-support activities and provides a basis to develop further strategies to treat people with problematic substance use more effectively.
