Gippsland PHN is partnering with the Gippsland Pharmacotherapy Network to bring you these events about Benzodiazepine Dependency & the Reconnexion service – referrals and resources for sleep & anxiety. These events will be accredited with the RACGP & ACRRM for CPD points and will also include updates on SafeScript and HealthPathways.
Reconnexion, a service of EACH, has been treating benzodiazepine dependency for more than 30 years and is Victoria’s only tranquiliser specialist agency. It is a not- for-profit organisation which provides counselling and support for people dependent on benzodiazepines and Z drugs. Reconnexion also actively promotes understanding and awareness of the complications associated with long term use of benzodiazepines to the medical profession, government and in the community. The Reconnexion workshop will cover benzodiazepines, resources and referrals, tapering and withdrawal and alternative strategies for insomnia and anxiety.
