The Review of Professional Pharmacy Programs and Services - Meditrax
An independent review is underway of Pharmacy remuneration and regulation in Australia. This will enable the panel to make recommendations on future remuneration to pharmacists for professional programs and services.
Residential Medication Management Reviews (RMMR) and Quality Use of Medicines (QUM) services to aged care facilities are an important part of the pharmacy programs to be reviewed. Meditrax seeks the support of aged care organisations, facility managers, GPs, RNs and care workers in maintaining and increasing these valuable services.
We ask for your support in signing the petition below to strengthen our case for the continuation and expansion of consultant pharmacist services in aged care facilities.
The more supporters we have, the better in ensuring the program remains strong and viable. Please share and circulate this email or petition via social media or electronic methods.
The Review’s Discussion Paper is available on the Pharmacy Review website: http://www.health.gov.au/pharmacyreview Submissions from interested parties including aged care organisations or individual staff are welcome and can be made through the website, and an online questionnaire can also, or alternatively, be completed.
Submissions to the Review close on 23 September 2016.
