Victorian Stakeholder Engagement Day

ScriptWise and Harm Reduction Australia

Victorian Stakeholder Engagement Day

In June 2017, Harm Reduction Australia and ScriptWise hosted a stakeholder engagement day in Victoria.

 

This event brought together key organisations and individuals to facilitate improved collaboration and coordination around the issue of prescription medication dependence in Victoria.

 

Participants discussed key issues related to upcoming changes in this space including the rescheduling of codeine from the 1st of February 2018, and the Victorian Government’s implementation of a real-time monitoring system.

 

The Victorian Stakeholder Day also provided a much-need opportunity to share information and identify broad issues and priority areas for action with these upcoming changes.

 

Please read the report below to find out more about the key issues and recommendations.
