TGA medicine labelling changes

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has introduced improvements to help bring Australian medicine labels up to date and align them with international best practice. They will help Australians to make more informed choices about their medicines and to use them more safely.

Posters are being developed targeted at healthcare professionals and consumers. The poster for health professionals is a quick reference guide highlighting some of the key medicine labelling changes that are important for consumers.

Health professionals are encouraged to download and print ‘Your medicine, your knowledge’ materials to help raise awareness about medicine labelling improvements.
