Code: BH/18/0801 Prescription and Over-the-Counter Medication

The abuse of, and dependence on, prescription and Over the Counter (OTC) medicines presents a growing problem both in our city and around the country.

Whether dependency has arisen over time following initial legitimate prescribing or the abuse of the medicine is intentional and non-medical to exploit its side effects, professionals might find themselves at a loss as regards to how best identify and support those affected by these issues.

This course will help you better understand the needs of prescription/OTC medicines users, and explore ways of supporting them more effectively.

We suggest you complete the two day Drug & Alcohol Basic Awareness course before attending any of the more specialised full day courses such as this one. This is to equip you with more general knowledge and skills in preparation for learning about the more in depth topics. Don’t hesitate to contact the Health Promotion Team on 01273 731900 if you would like to discuss this further.
