Our work in the community
NPS works with community groups and consumer organisations to develop strategic directions on quality use of medicines (QUM) initiatives across Australia.
We provide resources to enable you to make the best decisions about medicines and medical tests. These resources can be used by individuals and community groups to:
- improve skills and knowledge for decision making about medicines and medical tests
- raise and improve awareness about the potential benefits and risks of medicines and medical tests
- promote greater understanding and awareness of choices between medicines and non-medicine options
- increase consumer awareness about the key role you play in talking to health professionals about your medicines and medical tests.
