A sensible approach to drugs

Week of 21/08, convened by Sean Kempster

Australians are amongst the highest users of illicit drugs in the world, yet our current drug policies are potentially creating further problems for society and limiting the medical community. Our illicit drugs module aims to challenge participants’ perceptions of these highly stigmatised substances whilst opening up discussion as to what better drug policy may look like. We’ll also be exploring how health professionals can better approach patients who use drugs, and consider the role these drugs could play as medicines in the future.
