Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting Abstract


Due to increased patient accessibility for analgesics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs there is discussion about scope of practice extension into medication management for allied health professions. Currently in Australia, accredited exercise physiologists (AEP) and registered physiotherapists (PT) do not have medication management rights and legislatively should not discuss, recommend or counsel on any medications.
