PBS hospital medication chart

The Commission produced the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme hospital medication chart (PBS HMC) to support the prescribing, administration claiming and supply of PBS and non-PBS medicines directly from the chart without the need for a separate paper prescription in hospital settings.

The PBS HMC is based on the best evidence available at the time of development. Healthcare professionals are advised to use clinical discretion and consider the circumstances of the individual patient when using the chart for patient medication management in acute care settings.
