Open consultation

We have commenced public consultation with a wide range of stakeholders to inform the development of the standards. The feedback we receive influences the decisions we make.

There will be 3 rounds of consultation. We will update this page as we proceed through the consultations.

The first round of consultation has now closed.

Environmental scan and literature review

This review summarises literature relevant to the development of accreditation standards for education and training programs for pharmacist prescribers in Australia. It includes a review of international and national literature of pharmacist prescribing, and accreditation standards of other prescribing health professions.
