This is just one story of many, which includes chairs and equipment being thrown across ED rooms, four to five police officers and four or five security guards; for one man under the influence of ice.

This section provides access to a range of factsheets, guidelines and online resources for professionals working across a range of sectors, including:

  • General Practitioners
