Be Medicinewise is an annual, national awareness week that promotes the safer and wiser use of medicines. This year, Be Medicinewise will be held between 22 and 28 August 2016.
NPS Medicinewise is encouraging Australians to ‘Take Charge!’ of their medicines and their health by reminding everyone to:
How can I get involved?
- Download the Be Medicinewise Week Toolkit
- Download and share the campaign posters - take charge and 5 questions to ask - with your networks
- Order posters online
- Host your own workplace wellness event, for example, collect unwanted medicines and return to your local pharmacy, choose a day to wear purple
