Media centre

The media plays an important role in building a medicinewise Australia.

We work closely with the media to provide independent, accurate and evidence-based information on all things medicinewise, including medicines and medical tests.

Our media releases address current issues for both health professionals and our wider audiences, and provide a good overview of the wide range of topics we comment on.

We also distribute news to the media about NPS research, evaluation, and our publications including Australian Prescriber, RADAR and Medicine Update.

Read about our high-profile projects and campaigns or join our conversations on Facebook and Twitter.

We have a dedicated media team and a range of spokespeople with various clinical backgrounds available for interview.
