When confronted by a red flag in SafeScript clinicians may initially feel overwhelmed. The temptation might be to discharge the patient in question from one's care on the grounds that the patient is too complex.
I've just completed your Opioid Stewardship series of modules on Meducate and want to congratulate you on this initiative. I think you capture essential clinical matters for GP's very well and highlight resources available. I think the Workbook with its inclusive answers and references is excellent.

Though some sessions seem to be specifically targeted at GPs, I have found the sessions currently created by Meducate to be highly relevant and easy to complete. They have been valuable and added to my knowledge base in my industry (Mental Health). The additional resources are easy to follow and I will be able to add them to my CPD once I finish the workbooks.
I would like to commend you for this excellent website and the valuable educational resources upon it. I do a bit of AOD medicine and I find the contents of this website topical, highly informative, evidence based and easy to integrate into my everyday practice. It is a valuable tool in my 'war chest' and I find an easy way of staying up to date with new information and evidence in the AOD sphere.
