ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the effectiveness of the quality use of medicine (QUM) in improving health outcomes and maximizing health gain. He explains that the concept of QUM was introduced with the introduction of the Australian National Prescribing Service in the country. He claims that, despite QUM's notable cause, the strategy is still under deliberation because its implementation is not in line with the Australian Government's proposal for the efficiency in the allocation of scarce resources.
