in Queensland and the Northern Territory

Login to download resource.

This is your one-stop reference to prescribing medications privately and on the PBS, and also incorporates the lubricant eye preparations that attract a PBS benefit.

This resource guides members through their legal requirements for writing prescriptions in QLD and the NT, including prescribing PBS, prescribing Compounded Ophthalmic Medications and prescribing via the Special Access Scheme (SAS).

This guide also includes a complete list of medicines prescribed by optometrists, encompassing all medications commercially available in Australia, not just those available on the PBS.
