Prescribing Working Group

AHPRA and the National Boards have established a Prescribing Working Group through the Forum of Chairs’ Workforce Reform Committee to develop a governance framework and other resources to support the development and review of National Board regulatory policy related to prescribing of scheduled medicines.

The Prescribing Working Group will act as a reference point for engagement with National Board scheduled medicines advisory committees and with government, accreditation authorities and other stakeholders on matters related to prescribing by practitioners within the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme.

Members are listed in the terms of reference and communiqués from the group’s meetings are published on the Prescribing Working Group Communiqués page.
