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.
