A full integration of Don’t Rush to Crush 2nd Edition is now available in AusDI
This provides Australian pharmacists with easy access to important drug management information and advice in one convenient location, says AusDI and the SHPA.
This final stage is part of an agreement between AusDI and the SHPA to deliver the Don’t Rush to Crush message – that the form of medicines and the way they are ingested is crucial to their efficacy – within the workflow of the AusDI platform.
“SHPA is excited about the benefits that pharmacists will experience as part of the evolution of this collaboration,” said SHPA Chief Executive, Kristin Michaels.
“Having the Don’t Rush to Crush information easily identifiable alongside drug information contained in AusDI, will provide pharmacists with a central repository of quality medicines information.”
While Don’t Rush to Crush has previously been accessible through AusDI, users can now browse monographs or search for them through the AusDI Free Text Search as the monographs have been fully indexed and associated to the AusDI product list where available.
All Don’t Rush to Crush monographs have also been converted to HTML allowing for easy ‘in-document’ navigation and cross linking to preparation methods and supporting material.
An AusDI spokesperson said, “We are very pleased to be able to work with SHPA to provide our customers with the drug information contained in Don’t Rush to Crush 2nd Edition.”
It’s vitally important that all healthcare professionals – from pharmacists, nurses, aged care staff through to hospital clinicians have convenient access to this information”, said the spokesperson.
The initial release will be deployed to the desktop version of AusDI only, however availability within the web optimised mobile AusDI platform will follow shortly after.
Any new or existing AusDI subscribers wanting to add Don’t Rush to Crush to their current subscription can call the AusDI Sales Team on 1300 118 120.
