New advice on multiple prescribing and complementary medicines

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

The new recommendations from Choosing Wisely and the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) are designed to help guide health professionals and patients by providing evidence-based advice about appropriate use of medicines.
 
There is certainly good reason to provide this advice, with around 230,000 Australians admitted to hospital each year due to medication misadventure – four times the number hospitalised because of motor vehicle accidents.
