NOTICE OF REQUEST FOR COMMENT ON THE STANDARD TREATMENT GUIDELINES AND ESSENTIAL MEDICINES LIST FOR ADULT HOSPITAL LEVEL OF CARE October 31, 2023

The ministerially appointed National Essential Medicines List (EML) Committee has developed an Adult Critical Care Chapter in the 2022-23 review cycle to replace the previous Adult Hospital Level Chapter 23 Sedation.

The Adult Hospital Level STGs and EML are aimed for use by doctors providing care at district and regional level hospitals to provide access to pharmaceuticals to manage common conditions at the respective levels of care. The Adult Critical Care Chapter is aimed at intensive care unit and high care treatment for patients.

Kindly circulate the request for comment to relevant healthcare professionals at your institutions. Constructive comment regarding the identification of major errors, particularly involving diagnosis and treatment, will be appreciated. Please include a short motivation to substantiate any comment made.

Where an alternative medicine is recommended, this should be supported by appropriate evidence. Attached is the guideline for the Motivation of a New Medicine on the National Essential Medicines List.

It would be appreciated if comments can be received by 24 November 2023. Comments may be submitted via e-mail to:

Ms Maropeng Rapetsoa @ Maropeng.Rapetsoa@health.gov.za
