To the Editor: Pharmacometrics is an emerging field in Australia, with use in a wide range of therapeutic areas including cardiovascular disease, critical patient care, diabetes and paediatrics.1-4 The results of pharmacometric analyses are often referred to in Therapeutic Goods Administration-approved product information; however, for many clinicians, pharmacometrics remains a mysterious area of research. Therefore, we seek to promote the discipline of pharmacometrics in clinical practice.
