The locally researched, evidence-based drug herb interactions are designed to provide health professionals with the ability to retrieve information on clinically significant drug and herb interactions.
  • Don’t Rush to Crush – with the need for clear, professional advice regarding the suitability of crushing a medicine, the Society of Hospital Pharmacists of Australia (SHPA) and MIMS have partnered to ensure the 2nd Edition of “Don’t Rush to Crush” is available as an additional module within eMIMS Cloud. Please find the video link below.

There is nothing else like it so take a look and see for yourself how much value Don’t Rush to Crush in eMIMSCloud will bring to your daily work.

Navigation is simple: search generic or brand in the Medicines Information module and with one click find the information specific to that medicine.  If you want to search the entire Don’t Rush to Crush Content you can do so in the eMIMSCloud Clincal Resources module.

Save yourself time, improve patient safety and be confident your information is the most up to date you can find.

You can add Don’t Rush Crush to your current eMIMSCloud subscription and at a prorated cost that fits the timing of your existing subscription.  Updates to the content will continue as and when they are made by the SHPA.

Both eMIMSCloud and Don’t Rush to Crush are included in Pharmacy Board of Australia’s list of essential references for pharmacy practice and combining these two products electronically can reduce your overall costs.  With this in mind and with the need for clear, professional advice regarding the suitability of crushing a medicine, the Society of Hospital Pharmacists of Australia (SHPA) and MIMS have joined forces.
