The NPS Doctor’s Bag app

The Doctor’s Bag is a free app offered by NPS MedicineWise.  It is designed to support Australian health professionals during emergencies.  The app has two modules:

  • The Doctor’s Bag module provides recommended doses for drugs in the PBS Prescriber Bag, including adrenaline doses for anaphylaxis and calculators for weight-based dosing in children. It acts as an emergency backup, providing reassurance that the correct dose has been given. It can also be used as an educational tool in non-emergency settings. The information is kept up to date as the contents of the PBS Prescriber Bag change.
  • The Anaphylaxis Management module is based on the popular Anaphylaxis: Emergency Management for Health Professionals wallchart publishe by Australian Prescriber in 2011, and updated in 2018.

The app is available to download free from the NPS MedicineWise website.
