Doctor Taking Notes


Each patient should be assessed on a case-by-case basis to determine if a particular medicine is suitable for their condition and circumstances. In order to determine if your patient is eligible as a suitable candidate for alternative therapies, there are a few prerequisites that need to be met:

  • Your patient has a chronic condition that has lasted longer than three months

  • Your patient has tried more than one standard treatment for their condition

  • Your patient experiences severe side effects from standard treatments or standard treatments do not work

  • You have set realistic expectations about their treatment plan, and explained that there is no guarantee the therapy will work for their condition

  • You have clinical justification including relevant evidence that supports the use of the prescribed therapies for the patient’s condition


Any registered medical practitioner in Australia is able to prescribe alternative therapy for a wide range of conditions. 

There are currently two commonly used pathways that can be used to access non-approved therapeutic products in Australia:

TGA Special Access Scheme – B

This allows certain medical practitioners to access therapeutic goods that are not included in the ARTG and can be used if the patient does not fit the Category A definition of seriously illness, or if the therapeutic good is not authorised for supply under Category C.

The medical practitioner can submit the application to the TGA and the State Government (where needed) and upon approval, can then write the prescription for the specific product. This approval currently lasts for 12 months.

Authorised Prescriber Scheme

This is a medical practitioner who is approved to prescribe unapproved therapeutic goods for a particular condition or class of patients in their immediate care without further TGA approval.


Once a medical practitioner is part of the Authorised Prescriber Scheme, they don’t need to notify the TGA each time they prescribe an unapproved product, however, they must report the number of patients treated every six months to the TGA.
