In February 2018, prescriptions became required in Australia to obtain any codeine-containing medicine for pain relief, cough, and colds. These codeine scheduling changes led to a significant drop in the amount of low-dose codeine being given out across the country.

In this ISCRR Learning Series webinar, Dr. Michael Di Donato (Healthy Working Lives Research Group, Monash University) discusses the findings of his study of the impact of this national policy change on trends in the prevalence, pattern, and doses of opioids and pain medicines dispensed to Victorian workers with claims for musculoskeletal conditions.

Join your host, Dr. Jimmy Twin, ISCRR's Communications and Translation Manager, as he guides the conversation on this important workplace health and safety topic!

*ISCRR is the acronym of The Institute for Safety Compensation and Recovery Research: a joint initiative of WorkSafe Victoria and Monash Univeristy.
