This page contains information for health professionals about Canberra Script.

Canberra Script is a real-time prescription monitoring (RTPM) system that is part of a national effort to minimise harms associated with monitored medicines.

The ACT Minister for Health launched Canberra Script on 24 February 2022. Canberra Script supports safe and effective use of monitored medicines. It aims to reduce harm and preventable deaths in the ACT community.

Each State and Territory has a RTPM system. They support national prescription monitoring.

Canberra Script helps identify people who are at risk of harm from high-risk prescription medicines like opioids and benzodiazepines.

Using Canberra Script is voluntary.
