Poll: should pharmacists 'strike'? : 24/02/2016 :

As reported above, employee pharmacists at Friendly Society owned National Pharmacies across Victoria and South Australia took industrial / strike action yesterday by starting work one hour later than rostered resulting in some pharmacies being closed for that hour.

Pharmacists 'striking' is highly unusual but not unheard of as Bill Arnold pointed out today. In 1989, in the lead up to the First Community Pharmacy Agreement, pharmacies across the country closed for the morning in a dispute with government over PBS payments.

Should pharmacists take strike action or is this more an action that might be taken by blue collar workers rather than 'professionals'?

Please let us know what you think by voting in today's AusPharm poll.

OTC naloxone just the first step to better access? : 22/02/2016 :

The 1 February down-scheduling of naloxone to Schedule 3 must be followed up by further regulatory changes that allow other (non pharmacist, non doctor) health professionals to supply naloxone directly to their clients, without need for doctor or pharmacist involvement, say the authors of a Perspective published online today by the Medical Journal of Australia.

Professor Simon Lenton, deputy director of the National Drug Research Institute in Perth, and his coauthors, wrote that take-home naloxone (THN) programs currently provide naloxone via prescription, typically engaging a doctor to attend small-group training sessions.
