The Pharmacy Board of Australia (the Board) is committed to ensuring that practitioners are aware of relevant issues that inform professional practice.
Therefore, from time to time the Board will publish relevant information for practitioners to consider.
Information on other regulators and stakeholders relevant to the pharmacy profession.
Information and resources to support professional practice.
Summaries of tribunal decisions about pharmacists.
Case studies to help practitioners understand and meet their professional and legal obligations as a registered pharmacist.
Following developments in prescribing in 2015, the Board set out to consider the implications for the public if states and territory governments were to authorise pharmacists to prescribe. The Board also explored whether it has any regulatory barriers in place that would affect pharmacists’ ability to prescribe in the Australian healthcare setting.
