It is important to limit BZD use to short-term intervals to minimise the risk of complications and side effects. However, while previous studies have shown recent reductions in BZD prescribing; however, little is known about sociodemographic characteristics and trends of long-term BZD prescribing in Australia.
Join Academic Post registrar Amelia Woods at this webinar to find out the results of the study and more about the post. Following this session you will:
- Understand why it is important to identify patients receiving long-term prescription BZDs.
- Be familiar with the trends in prevalence and duration of long-term BZD prescribing from 2011-2018.
- Have considered the implications for practice and next steps.
During this webinar, Amelia will also share her experiences as an Academic Post registrar and discuss opportunities available for others interested in this post.
