Product Details

The National Inpatient Medication Chart (NIMC) is a standardised tool for communicating patient medication information consistently between health professionals. It is based on standardised processes for medicines prescribing, dispensing, administering and reconciling in health service organisations. A national, standard medication chart ensures that health professionals are familiar with the layout of the chart and the safe medication management principles on which it is based no matter where they practice. Use of the NIMC is mandatory for all Australian public and private health service organisations including day procedure services. The evidence-based principles that guided development of the NIMC are applicable to all healthcare settings. Because it is national standard, the NIMC is incorporated into health professional under-graduate curricula and into safe medication management competency frameworks and materials. Health professionals are familiar with the NIMC from their first day in practice. The NIMC reflects best practice and is evidence-based. It is designed to assist health professionals improve the safety and quality of medication management. It is also intended as a tool to minimise the risk of adverse medication events.
