Western Victoria PHN wins contract to deliver RTPM training

Western Victoria Primary Health Network (PHN) will lead a consortium including all Victorian PHNs and NPS MedicineWise to develop and deliver the training and education package for doctors and pharmacists that makes up a central plank in the state's real time prescription monitoring system.

The Victorian government allocated just over a million dollars for education and training as part of its overall $29.5 million RTPM package, which it announced last week would include Schedule 4 medicines implicated in misuse such as benzodiazepines and Stilnox as well as Schedule 8 controlled drugs such as opioids, Xanax and Ritalin.
