Australian medicines handbook 2014

Australian medicines handbook 2014 is now available.  The Library holds one copy in print, but it is also available online via the Clinicians Health Channel.  Mobile versions are also available.

The philosophy of the AMH is to use the best available evidence to support prescribing and dispensing recommendations. The purpose of the AMH is two-fold: firstly, to provide a readily accessible, concise, up-to-date source of independent drug information to facilitate effective, rational, safe and economical prescribing and dispensing; secondly, to provide an educational tool for practitioners and students. There are three main types of information in the AMH: drug monographs, class statements and therapeutic information.
