Indigenous risk impact screen (IRIS)

The Indigenous Risk Impact Screen and Brief Intervention program provides a culturally secure and validated screening instrument and brief intervention designed to meet the specific needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Queensland and across Australia.


The IRIS team offers training to all workers who have contact with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients and communities.

The team visits sites and communities across Queensland to provide training.  There are two IRIS training programs offered:

  1. The IRIS 2 Day Workshop trains participants how to use the toolkit in a culturally appropriate framework
  2. The IRIS 4 Day Train the Trainer Program provides further training for those participants that have completed the 2 Day Workshop (pre-requisite) and wish to facilitate their own 2 Day Workshop.
