Initiatives and programs
We're working on a range of policy initiatives, programs and campaigns to help improve your health and the health of all Australians.
The Greater Choice for At Home Palliative Care measure aims to improve palliative care coordination through Primary Health Networks (PHNs).
The Real Time Prescription Monitoring (RTPM) is a nationally implemented system, designed to monitor the prescribing and dispensing of controlled medicines with the aim of reducing their misuse in Australia.
The Primary Health Care Research initiative will provide $100 million over 10 years from 2022-23. It aims to support an increase in Australia’s evidence base in primary health care through research to improve service delivery and patient outcomes, and translate this knowledge into action.
The Value in Prescribing (ViP) Program funds resources, tools and interventions. These support specialist health professionals and patients in using immunoglobulin products and alternatives to biological disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (bDMARDs).
