NETS & CDNM Submission Medicines Amendment Bill

12 April 2012

Our submission supports the intent of this bill in relation to the provision for nurse practitioners to become authorised prescribers, and for the amended definition of designated prescriber.  We consider, however, that the clause associated with temporary prescribing rights is difficult to support as it is worded in an unclear way, and we have highlighted this in our submission.Our view reflects the shared approach from the National Nursing Organisations . See submission for further detail.
