Getting it Right for Medicines Stewardship


These Guiding Principles for Medicines Stewardship Programs will assist health service organisations to develop and implement medicines stewardship programs. The goals of medicines stewardship are to ensure the safe and Quality Use of Medicines (QUM) that meet an individual’s needs, while minimising harm to the individual and society, with an aim to improve overall health outcomes for the whole population.

A toolkit to assist implementation is also available.

The toolkit also has links to the flowchart to guide implementation of the Guiding Principles, webinar and further reading.
