Our weekly newsletter includes a summary of the latest TAG activities, key Australian and international reports and publications, medication safety, papers of interest, consultations and upcoming events.
The New South Wales Therapeutic Advisory Group Inc. (NSW TAG) is an independent, not-for-profit member-based organisation, comprised of clinical pharmacologists, pharmacists, nurses and clinicians committed to promoting quality use of medicines (QUM) in NSW public hospitals and the wider community.
We aim to provide consumers of pharmaceutical health care in NSW with the most appropriate medicines in the most appropriate manner whilst ensuring that the limited resources of the health care budget devoted to medicines use are used according to sound economic principles.
In pursuing this goal, we focus on providing information, advice and support to decision-makers in NSW public hospitals, NSW Ministry of Health and other relevant organisations.
