Ethics, Law, and Medical Practice

By Kerry J. Breen; Vernon D. Plueckhahn et al. | Go to book overview
The prescription must be in ink and if not written on a pad provided by the HIC, must include all the stipulated information, including provision of a duplicate.
Up to three separate items may be listed on a PBS/RPBS prescription, whereas only one item may be listed on an Authority prescription.
Non-PBS items should not be prescribed on a prescription for PBS/RPBS items.
If non-PBS items are prescribed on a pad provided for PBS/RPBS purposes, the notation PBS/RPBS must be clearly crossed out.
PBS/RPBS prescriptions must be presented to a pharmacist and dispensed within 12 months of the date on which the prescription was written.

In addition to these provisions, state regulations in regard to drugs of dependence (see Chapter 20) must be adhered to.

As indicated in Chapter 20, doctors have a responsibility to adequately inform patients of possible side effects and adverse effects of drugs. To assist doctors and pharmacists in this regard, the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 was amended in 1992 to make it mandatory that pharmaceutical companies provide in simple language consumer product information to accompany all new drugs forthwith and to cover all existing drugs by January 2002. This information is being made available as package inserts, tear-off leaflets and electronically, for distribution primarily via pharmacists.
