Abstract

The emergence of different and effective modes of e-communications has rapidly expanded possibilities for more extensive dialogue, collaboration and learning. For professionals and those working with addiction issues and support services, these offer increased opportunities to break down significant barriers to integrating issues of addiction into the care sector workforce and to ensure that the workforce can respond more appropriately and confidently and to access a range of up-to-date resources as well as to share best practice and expertise. Our international collaboration to develop a Global Classroom which started at the beginning of 2014 seeks to provide an innovative online platform for stimulating learning among people of different disciplines and interests on addictions. We aim to bring people together from diverse cultural communities to engage in dialogue, debate and to share ideas on addiction beyond their own peers, regions or country and to meet a range of learning needs within this structure which is inclusive and developmental. This symposium will share the outcomes of our early developments in the first year of developing a global addiction academy project, the challenges and possibilities particularly focusing on the impact of such methodology on achieving wider engagement on a global public health issue and enhancing inter-professional learning.
