Hegney, Desley and McKeon, Christine and Plank, Ashley and Raith, Lisa and Watson, Jennifer (2003) The administration and supply of controlled and restricted medication by nurses in rural and remote Queensland. Project Report. University of Southern Queensland, Toowoomba, Australia.
Nurses working in rural and remote areas of Australia often have an expanded role compared to their counterparts working in metropolitan areas. Recent changes in legislation recognise and attempt to accommodate some of these differences. The most important area in which differences exist is that involving the medication of clients. This report describes the results of a study of the medication practices of nurses extant in rural and remote Queensland in 2001 and 2002 and addresses issues concerning the compliance with recent state legislation of that practice.
