BNF 69 now published
The British National Formulary (BNF) 69 (March 2015) has now been published. The BNF provides up-to-date, practical guidance on prescribing, dispensing, and administering medicines.
Please note that NICE have altered their distribution arrangement for England, and eligible health professionals will now receive one free print copy of BNF a year - the September issue - to supplement online access. The March edition has been printed as usual, and you can buy your copy here.
Some of the significant changes in BNF 69 include:
- Updated general guidance on drugs and driving in response to new regulations in force from March 2015
- Updated guidance on risk assessment and treatment in the management of arrhythmias
- Updated recommendations on minimising risk of osteonecrosis of the jaw and hypocalcaemia associated with denosumab following new MHRA advice
