Department of Health and Human Services SafeScript.

Prescription drugs now kill more Victorians each year than road accidents. In order to address this issue, the Victorian Government introduced SafeScript, a clinical tool that provides information about a patient’s prescription history for certain high-risk medicines. It facilitates the early identification, treatment and support for patients who are developing signs of dependence.
