Bulletin 175 Launched - Hypnotics update is now available to all PrescQIPP users.

In this bulletin, we offer advice on managing new patients with insomnia, recommend cost-effective prescribing choices, and encourage you to review chronic hypnotic users with a view to helping them withdraw from treatment. We recognise that this is not an easy task, but we have developed and included links to some useful implementation tools to assist you.
