Pharmaceutical Society of Australia in AJP: No Homeopathy

here, more bad news for homeopathy:

001. at ajp.com.au, in "Pharmacists Key in Complementary Medicines… But No Support for Homeopathy" (2015-09-10), Megan Haggan writes:

"PSA’s Complementary medicines position paper says complementary medicines may be used as an adjunctive therapy with conventional medicines, provided there is evidence to support their use [...] National President of the PSA, Joe Demarte, says [...] 'PSA strongly encourages all consumers considering taking complementary medicines to first consult their pharmacist for sound, evidence-based advice' [...] Demarte says PSA endorses the NHMRC report, released in March 2015, which found there were no health conditions for which there was reliable evidence that homeopathy was effective.  PSA does not support the sale of homeopathy products in pharmacy. 'Our position is that pharmacists must use their professional judgement to prevent the supply of products with evidence of no effect.'"

hear, hear.
