Getting it out there: teaching baclofen use:
The best way to make baclofen treatment for alcoholism more available is to make information and teaching about it readily available to any interested doctors.
This website is a start, providing a range of information and practical tools. The feedback from readers will improve the site so that it responds better to the needs of doctors and interested others.
The primary aim is to assist GPs as they collectively see more alcoholic patients that any other doctor group. I also think GPs are best able to deliver the holistic care which these patients need. It’s not just about baclofen.
According to demand, any of these can be organised on request via the enquiry boxes below:
At RPH – in small or large group format.
At GP education facilities such as RACGP and WAPHA.
At General Practices – for 5 or more GPs.
