Coroner criticises lack of urgency over real-time prescription monitoring in NSW

The NSW deputy state coroner has criticised a lack of urgency in implementing a real-time prescription monitoring (RTPM) system in NSW, calling for a scheme to be introduced in conjunction with other support measures to reduce accidental deaths from multi-drug toxicity.

The move comes as a public awareness campaign begins in Victoria in advance of the statewide roll-out of its SafeScript scheme next month, following a pilot in western Victoria. SafeScript is now integrated with MedicalDirector, Best Practice, Genie and Zedmed.
