Launch of the Medicines Waiting Room

PPA was honoured to support Tori Brown and Eli Lilly in their official launch of the ‘Medicines Waiting Room Report’ last week at Australian Parliament House. The report, developed in conjunction with Fleur Caponong of IPSOS, aimed to support the Australian Government in developing policies centered around patient needs, including considering the time from the TGA approval of new medicines to PBS listing.  The report explores the perceptions of medicines access, use, and supply among a sample of 100 Australian clinicians from varying medical specialties who keep up to date with overseas trends in their area of expertise.

In launching the report, attendees heard from the Assistant Minister for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention and Assistant Minister for Rural and Regional Health the Hon Emma McBride. As well as the Co-Chairs of the Parliamentary Friends of Medicines, Dr Mike Freelander MP and Dr David Gillespie MP.  Thank you to Mr Jerome Laxale MP (Member for Bennelong) and Senator Deborah O’Neill (Senator for New South Wales) for their ongoing contributions, interest, and support, as well as Elizabeth De Somer, Gail Morgan and Kate McKeown from Medicines Australia.
