From 1 February 2018, medicines containing codeine will no longer be available over the counter in pharmacies.
The Department of Health Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is working in collaboration with Primary Health Networks and pain specialists to ensure health professionals dealing with chronic and acute pain management have alternative strategies to use in preparation for 1 February and beyond.
The TGA will be hosting a series of evening workshops on the up-scheduling of codeine. These sessions will provide attendees the opportunity to engage with senior TGA representatives as well as leading specialists in acute and chronic pain management and addiction.
Details of the agenda and speakers are in attached program.
