Abstract

Pharmacists expanding their scope of practice has been one of the most prevalent topics this year in pharmacy. These changes are occurring not just in Australia but globally. However, pharmacists' scope of practice still varies significantly around the world, even between states. In countries such as England, which have been impacted by doctor shortages for much longer than Australia, pharmacists have a greater scope of practice, including independent prescribing, and it looks like we are following suit. Our practice is, and should be, driven by the needs of our patients.
