National residential medication chart

The national residential medication chart (NRMC) was developed by the Commission for the Australian Government for use in aged care facilities.

NRMC use

The NRMC enables prescribing and supply in aged care homes of most medicines (and Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme/Repatriation Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme claiming by pharmacists, where applicable) directly from the chart, without the need for a separate prescription.
