Event description

Description

In Victoria, more people die due to prescription medication overdose than on our roads. That's #OneTooMany


Join ScriptWise and a variety of local health organisations to learn more about how to avoid the harms associated with the long-term use of prescription medications such as opioids and benzodiazepines.


From October 2018, Warrnambool will be one of the first locations where the Victorian Government will implement SafeScript, its life saving real-time prescription monitoring system. 


In preparation for SafeScript, the One Too Many Health Expo will help give you new tools to manage health conditions such as anxiety and chronic pain long-term. It will also provide insights into how to recognise prescription medication dependence, and how to access help within your local community. 


Highlights include:


  • Two free workshops on managing pain and mental wellbeing

  • Presentations and a Q and A panel of local health professionals

  • Local health organisation Information tables where you can ask questions about available services


RSVP now to reserve your place in one of our two free workshops and/or to register your attendance.


About the One Too Manyinitiative


ScriptWise's One Too Manyinitiative is being launched in support of the Victorian government's implementation of its real-time prescription monitoring system, SafeScript.


SafeScript will help save lives by giving health professionals access to a patient's prescription history for high-risk medications such as opioids and benzodiazepines.


ScriptWise's new One Too Many community initiative is dedicated to:

  • Raising awareness about the risks associated with long-term use of prescription opioids such as opioids or benzodiazepines

  • Ensuring Victorians understand the role and importance of SafeScript in saving lives across the State

  • Promoting preventative strategies and activities within communities
