Did you know that nearly 200 million doses of antibiotics are administered in hospitals to patients and among non-hospitalized patients, more than 130 million courses of antibiotics are prescribed by doctors each year? It is estimated that half of these latter prescriptions are unnecessary since they are being prescribed for colds, coughs and other viral infections*.
In cough and cold season please think CAREFULLY about your antibiotic use!

MBA in Healthcare?
Macquarie Graduate School of Managementwill once again offer a subject specifically designed for Healthcare Managers. MGSM recognises that industry-specific training for future healthcare leaders as critical to meeting the demands of Australia’s ageing population, as well the general increasing demand on health care services, tight government budgets and continuing global economic uncertainty.
Topics will range from the local health scene to global healthcare and cover health economics; policy and practices; funding mechanisms; medical law and ethics.
