Poll: AMA and pharmacy services

The Australian Medical Association (AMA) is vociferous in its opposition to any such proposal, as has been highlighted by its rejection of pharmacist vaccination, despite the success of such services overseas and in Australian trials. 

While many in pharmacy currently believe the profession is well placed to negotiate for some expansion of funded professional services, the recent AMA campaign against proposed Medicare reforms has shown it remains powerful and capable of successfully gaining political and media interest.
