GPHN EVENT:

From April 2019, the Victoria Government will roll out SafeScript, a new system that provides prescription information to enable the safer supply of high-risk medicines.

To support prescribers and pharmacists across the state, training opportunities are now available. Gippsland PHN will be providing two hour face-to-face training sessions from March 2019.

The training provides an overview of the SafeScript system, discusses high-risk medicines misuse in the community, considers best practice for prescribing and dispensing high-risk medicines, and explores ways of managing people who are at risk of high-risk medicine misuse.
