Doctors in WA have been told to stop using ChatGPT to write up medical notes, as the AMA warns guidelines are urgently needed on artificial intelligence and medicine. 

Staff at five Perth hospitals have been advised to “cease immediately” using artificial intelligence (AI) for patient notes, in an email from Perth’s South Metropolitan Health Service (SMHS).
