As parts of Australia swelter through a heatwave, we take a look at the last week in pharmacy…

PSA president Chris Freeman wrote to pharmacy banner and buying groups asking them not to stock or promote homeopathic products, due to a lack of evidence to support their use.

We looked at how pharmacists can transform prescribing, as well as how they can help support overworked GPs and their patients.

The Royal Commission into aged care began, with the ABC warning of ‘horror stories’ to come. Pill testing stayed on the agenda following another tragic death at a music festival.

There have been more reported cases of measles, reports that Baby Boomers may be replacing codeine with alcohol,

Meanwhile visits to community pharmacies have increased, and we took a look at the latest data on PBS expenditure and prescriptions for the 2017-18 financial year… as well as the transition arrangements for 6CPA programs.
