Pharmacists permitted to conduct medication reviews remotely

Community pharmacists will be allowed to deliver home medicines reviews and aged care residential medication management reviews by telehealth from tomorrow in a temporary move during the coronavirus pandemic.

The changes also allow them to provide MedsChecks and Diabetes MedsChecks by telehealth to eligible patients, which normally involves face to face consultations in the pharmacy to help patients with self-management and to identify medication-related problems such as non-adherence.
