Mental Health and AOD Education Month – Week 5, Video 2

March 01, 2022

Continuing Week 5 on the topic of Distraction and Calming Strategies and Tools for our EDs, today we have another short video presentation for you.

In this video, Dev Raithaththa, Service Development and Operations Manager, Mental Health, discusses the benefits of Distraction and Calming interventions, and how Pastime Packs can be used as part of your ED patient care.

*New* Pastime Packs

A reminder that launching next Monday March 7th, a distraction and calming tools bundle we’re calling the Pastime Pack will be available at Footscray and Sunshine EDs.

This week please refer to new Western Health Guidelines and our Educational Webinar for an explanation of how to use the Pastime Pack with patients in ED.
