Finding medicines information online
Following the closure of the Therapeutic Advice and Information Service (TAIS) on 1 July 2010, NPS has compiled a guide to medicines information resources on its website, which can be accessed via the health professional webpage. Please note that some of the listed resources are freely available and others need a subscription fee.
Change of number for Medicines Line
As of 1 July 2010, the number for the NPS consumer telephone information service Medicines Line has changed to 1300 MEDICINE (1300 633 424). Medicines Line provides information to consumers about prescription, over-the-counter and complementary medicines. NPS is collaborating with healthdirect Australia to deliver Medicines Line and all calls are answered in the first instance by a registered nurse. Questions may be answered on the spot, or callers may be referred to their general practitioner, pharmacist or another health professional. Complex enquiries may be triaged to an NPS pharmacist.
New branding for NPS
NPS has launched a new 'look and feel' as of 1 July 2010. Rather than use the full reference to National Prescribing Service, we are using the NPS acronym which is how many people already refer to us. We have also introduced a new tagline – Better choices, better health. For more information and to view the new logo, visit www.nps.org.au
