Welcome to the 2023-2025 edition of Healthcare Handbook

The Healthcare Handbook is a convenient, comprehensive, single reference text for New Zealand pharmacies and learning institutions.

Providing concise, editorially independent and up-to-date information on a broad range of common conditions, along with the appropriate medication options, the Healthcare Handbook is suitable for use by assistants, technicians, students and pharmacists.​ It is an essential guide for all pharmacy staff, as well as an accredited pharmacy audit text.

From July 2023, the Healthcare Handbook is only available here on the Pharmacy Today Kaitiaki Rongoā o te website. To view it you must have a Pharmacy Today subscription. If your workplace has a subscription but you don't, you can view the Healthcare Handbook on any computer in the pharmacy using our Group Login feature.

You can find what you are looking for using the handy search function at the bottom right of the display.
