Biologics and biosimilars best practice


These Guiding Principles provide a national approach to the governance of biologics and their biosimilars. They assist those responsible for the prescription, preparation, dispensing, administration and monitoring of biologics in Australian hospitals to achieve good governance and decision-making in relation to the use of these medicines.

See the communication templates for biosimilar medicines switch communication templates that can be used in your hospital.

A checklist based on the Guiding Principles is to assist you to identify any gaps and/or
areas for improvements for your hospital or health service organisation.
