Health Professionals Prescribing Pathway project [final pathway and report] – Health Workforce Australia – November 2013

“Overview

Improvements to health workforce productivity and flexibility are vital if the workforce is to meet the growing demand for healthcare across Australia. One strategy to assist with this improvement is the development of a national pathway to prescribing by health professionals other than doctors.

The Health Professionals Prescribing Pathway (HPPP) is a Health Workforce Australia (HWA) project that seeks to deliver:

A national approach to prescribing by health professionals, other than doctors, that covers important concepts such as prescribing models, competency attainment, registration and endorsement, and safety, quality and practice issues.
An implementation strategy for a national prescribing pathway.

Latest news
