"The Australian Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme and the consumption of medicines in Australia" Australia has one of the highest consumption rates for medicines of all countries. The costs of the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme in Australia are increasing each year. Within the report, students must address the following areas: – What are the costs of medicine consumption in Australia and why is this the case? – What types of medicines are consumed (both prescribed and non-prescribed) and what are the problems with the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme? The report should utilise appropriate data from the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) as well as other relevant health and pharmaceutical-related data available in the public domain. Students should reference academic literature and analysis of the PBS to construct their response to the areas above. When appropriate, data should be expressed using charts and tables to illustrate comparisons, trends or other analysis. Students should present a clear understanding of the PBS and its financial implications for the health sector and for consumers and provide recommendations on how the scheme could be made more efficient and provide positive impacts on costs and consumption.
