The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) sought feedback on a proposal to improve patient access to critical medicines in acute-care settings.
Timely access to critical medicines is essential for medical professionals and their patients, particularly in acute-care settings.
We sought your feedback on proposed regulatory reforms to support hospital pharmacists to extemporaneously compound certain medicines in advance of a patient being identified, so they can be available for immediate use in an emergency.
