Medication. It’s your choice

Medication can play an important role in helping you live comfortably, stay safe, and live longer. The Commission has partnered with the Older Persons Advocacy Network (OPAN) to develop resources for consumers, their family members and decision-makers regarding medications.

These resources are designed to raise awareness of the issues relating to psychotropic medicines, and to help consumers and their representatives understand and confidently perform their role as active participants in making informed decisions (including giving or refusing consent) about medication use.


Further information and the full suite of resources, including the webinar series, is available on the OPAN website: Medication: It’s Your Choice.
