Drink Driving Rehabilitation - Rural and Urban Issues

Abstract

"Under the Limit" is a drink driving rehabilitation programme that was developed as part of a wider community intervention in the Central Queensland Region, and was first implemented in 1993. During the development of the programme, a wide range of issues had to be addressed in the rural/ provincial context in terms of both implementation and content. Local stakeholders were involved in the development of the programme , and facilitators are recruited from the local community and trained to present the programme to classes of 8-10 offenders within the TAFE system. Video and other resources were produced locally and the content had to be directly relevant to the provincial/ rural environment. The social context of drink driving was carefully considered. A distance education version of the programme has been developed and implemented, catering for people living in remote areas or who are otherwise unable to participate in the classroom version of the programme. Availability of "Under the Limit" has since been extended throughout Queensland, and the necessity for some modifications to content and implementation procedures has been identified during this process.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
