Meanwhile, the Society of Hospital Pharmacists of Australia (SHPA) and MIMS have partnered to ensure the 2nd Edition “Don’t Rush to Crush” is available as additional optional content within eMIMS Cloud.  Both are included in Pharmacy Board of Australia’s list of essential references for pharmacy practice.

For any healthcare professional prescribing, dispensing or administering medicines understanding what can and cannot be crushed is an imperative.  When a tablet or capsule cannot be swallowed, an obvious solution might be to crush the tablet or open the capsule and add the medication to food or drink but many tablets and capsules are not designed to be crushed or opened. For example, crushing an extended release tablet can destroy the medication time release properties with the whole dose being released within a few minutes rather than the intended 12 or 24 hours. 

This electronic version of Don’t Rush to Crush contains all updated monographs since the print version was released and updates will continued as and when they are made by the SHPA.
