This instalment of the Rural Health Webinar Series will equip GPs to better support patients to safely withdraw from methamphetamine use. Through case discussions, a panel of AOD experts will explore how GPs can assess a patient's stage of change, discuss harm minimisation strategies for pre-contemplative patients, and safely support patients in the contemplative and action stages of change to withdraw from methamphetamines.  The webinar will also highlight clinical resources and support services available to GPs treating patients with AOD issues. 
 
This webinar will be facilitated by Dr Paul Grinzi, GP Medical Educator for the RACGP's Alcohol and Other Drugs GP Education Program, who will be joined by a panel of experts including Dr Hester Wilson, Dr David Jacka, Dr Simon Slota-Kan and Dr Shani Macaulay
