On 24 February 2022, DORA (Drugs and Poisons Information System Online Remote Access) was replaced by Canberra Script as the ACT’s real time prescription monitoring system. Subsequently, the DORA website, https://dora.act.gov.au, was decommissioned on 31 March 2022.

Canberra Script is part of a national effort to minimise harms associated with monitored medicines and shares core features and functionality with other Australian jurisdictions.

If you are an eligible AHPRA-registered prescriber or pharmacist and wish to review a patient’s monitored medicines and/or Chief Health Officer approvals history, please register for Canberra Script at https://www.canberrascript.act.gov.au/

You will find Canberra Script is easier to setup and use than DORA and comes with a range of enhanced features and functionality to help you better identify and minimise risks associated with monitored medicines.
