This week, the Victorian Government launched it’s SafeScript Consumer Campaign across Western Victoria. The public campaign was broadcasted across free-to-air television, radio and social media and aims to improve consumer understanding of risks associated with some prescription medicines.
The campaign also draws attention to the scale of prescription medicine dependence, which can happen to anyone. It highlights action that the Victorian Government is taking to reduce the growing harms, including deaths, from high-risk prescription medicines by implementing SafeScript.

SafeScript, a new system providing prescription information to enable the safer supply of high risk medicines, is rolling out state wide in the coming months.
Gippsland PHN is supporting health professionals and pharmacists across Gippsland by providing free two-hour face-to-face training sessions.
