The Australian Medical Association (AMA) Victoria welcomes the Victorian Government
Royal Commission into Mental Health. This provides a unique opportunity to genuinely
address and upgrade the mental health system, which has for many years struggled to
meet the population growth and mental health needs of our population.
AMA Victoria is strongly opposed to the proposal to expand the medicines list to enable nurse practitioners to obtain, sell or supply a Schedule 8 poison (and certain Schedule 4 medications) in the lawful practice of their profession.
The Australian Medical Association (AMA Victoria) appreciates the opportunity to respond
to the Safer Care Victoria (SCV) consultation on chiropractic manipulation of children
under 12 years. AMA Victoria is pleased that SCV has decided to review this practice which is manifestly
unsafe and unwarranted.
