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.
