Calls for hospital drug policy rethink

READ: An interview with ANZCA President Professor David A Scott in The Age newspaper on the shortage of fentanyl in Australian hospitals.
 
Australian hospitals are being forced to ration the painkiller used in millions of operations each year because a major supplier cannot keep up with demand.

Read the full article (including an interview with Professor David A Scott) on The Age website. The story also ran in the Sydney Morning Herald and other Fairfax papers.

Professor Scott was also interviewed on 3AW’s top-rating Breakfast program (estimated audience of 215,000) and ABC regional radio in Victoria. Follow-up news reports were on more than 150 syndicated radio programs throughout Victoria, NSW, SA and Queensland.
