COVID-19 has accelerated the use of digital health, including electronic prescriptions, which offers patients convenient access to their medicines. Electronic prescriptions are an option for many types of medicines, including schedule 8 medicines (e.g. drugs of addiction). The Australian Digital Health Agency would like to take this opportunity to discuss key features of electronic prescribing, its uptake across the country and address some frequently asked questions, specifically relating to generating and dispensing electronic prescriptions for schedule 8 medicines.
We will have an expert panel to address your questions, and please submit any queries when registering for this session.
This webinar is open to all healthcare providers and their staff (e.g. practice managers, nurses, pharmacy staff etc.)
