FREE Public Lecture

The Royal Melbourne Hospital's Emergency Department is one of the busiest in Victoria with more than 220 patients treated each day.

The rise of Ice and abuse of other substances means that our team is at the forefront when finding new ways to treat patients in crisis while keeping our nurses and doctors safe from increasingly aggressive behaviours.

Dr Mark Putland discusses the day to day challenges our Emergency Department face, the impact on our staff and how we are caring for patients suffering from substance abuse.
