AMA Victoria wishes to convey its profound disappointment in the sentence handed to two individuals who attacked paramedics in 2016.
AMA Victoria does not support the new law which will see patient information released without consent.
“This is an exciting development for a specific group of patients with specific conditions. However, AMA Victoria holds reservations as there is a lack of significant evidence and information on its side effects, potential harms, and implications of long term use or use at a young age,” AMA Victoria President Dr Tony Bartone said.
First line legal advice is available to AMA Victoria members and includes guidance on matters of public and private professional practice, ethics and the legal obligations of doctors.
