Druglink article 1991 – Drug advisory committees in practice: Disjointed communication by Peter Baker

Drug advisory committees were established 1985 to coordinate local drug services, but without some of the elements originally recommended by the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs. In practice the committees work well as information-sharing forums but frequently fail to provide clear guidance on the development of services. Performance could be improved by measures including clarifying objectives, widening membership, and providing support and training for members.
