Owing' scripts poll result : 12/10/2007 :

This week's AusPharm poll asked people how they handles requests from patients for 'loans' of medication when they had run out of scripts. It followed an editorial about this published on AusPharm on Wednesday. The results are show at right.

Fully 39% of respondents admit to supplying such items in contravention of the relevant rules and regulations. What does this tell us? That pharmacists have little regard for the law? Or that perhaps the laws need to be changed to reflect the conditions under which we practise in 2007. What do you think?

NPS: When switching brands isn't recommended : 10/10/2007 :

As part of the current NPS 'Generic medicines are an equal choice' campaign, NPS has re-iterated that there are some instances when switching brands is not safe or recommended.

According to NPS, use of generic medicines must benefit the consumer without placing him or her at increased risk of medicine misadventure. For example, if a patient is likely to become confused because of a change in the appearance of a medicine or packaging, then switching brands would not be in that patient's best interest.

Following Australia's success in curbing pseudoe*hedrine (PSE) diversion the British authorities have announced some new policies.

AusPharm poll heralds start of Coalition revival? : 05/10/2007 :

Well, perhaps not.

However, as you can see from the results of this week's poll below, 'listers' voting intentions seem to be different to those of the general public, which very much suggest a comfortable ALP victory in the upcoming election.

We'll run this poll again the week before the election and see if the campaign promises influence listers' voting intentions.

Effective September 27, 2007 GenRx has changed its name to Apotex. The change is in name only with no changes to ownership or company contacts.

Of principal interest to pharmacists will be the name change of the GenRx generics which will now have the prefix APO rather than GenRx. For example, GenRx Simvastatin becomes APO Simvastatin. The product name changes will be phased in over the next two years.
