Rural and Isolated Practice Nurses (RIPENs) provide rural and isolated communities access to medicines when traditional prescribers are not available. The Department of Health is committed to ensuring rural and isolated communities continue to have access to, and quality use of, medications.
Further consultation on the RIPEN transition plan will take place in June at a number of locations in Queensland.
Tuesday 4 June 2019 from 2pm - 3pm at The Townsville Hospital.
Attendance options for Queensland Health staff include in person or via videoconference. Please email ChiefNurse-Office@health.qld.gov.au for dial-in details.
