QScript real-time prescription monitoring is here
December 13, 2021
From October 2021, healthcare providers must look up the real-time prescription monitoring system QScript before prescribing, dispensing or giving a treatment dose of any monitored medicine. This includes all Schedule 8 and some Schedule 4 medicines.
QScript complements practitioner expertise. Healthcare providers can use the information to further inform treatment options. It does not prevent prescribing or dispensing medicines that patients need.
For more information on QScript and how it will affect both healthcare providers and patients, visit www.qld.gov.au/health/qscript
