Background:It is estimated that over half of all medications prescribed are inappropriate. Prescribing is also become more complex and challenging with the rapid rise of new medications. As a result, both the use of formularies or Essential Medicines Lists (EMLs) and Standard Treatment Guidelines (STGs) have been used globally to simplify this..
