Telehealth clinics ‘misleading’ inexperienced doctors into poor prescribing: AHPRA

The watchdog said it is cracking down on businesses that seek to 'take advantage of consumer demand'.

Telehealth corporates and cannabis clinics are misleading early-career doctors who do not realise they are prescribing inappropriately, AHPRA is warning.

The watchdog has announced a crackdown on doctors, pharmacists and nurses who “are cashing in“ on patient demand for cannabis or compounded medicines such as semaglutide.
