AMA submission to the Pharmacy Remuneration and Regulation Review

15 Sep 2016
The AMA's submission to the ​Review of Pharmacy Remuneration and Regulation supports ​the quality use of medicines and​ the ​important contribution of pharmacists. ​The AMA therefore supports many Community Pharmacy Agreement​ programs. ​The AMA also supports changes to pharmacy location rules that would allow more pharmacies and medical practices to be co-located. However, the AMA opposes any​ expansion of pharmacist activities beyond their scope of practice and funding of additional pharmacist activities that are not first assessed for safety, efficacy and cost effectiveness.
