Your guide to delivering safe and effective medicines for children

Prescribing Medicines for Children covers a broad range of important topics in paediatric therapeutics, ranging from the principles of clinical pharmacology in children through to medication safety and drug development.

It is an international title that provides guidance on the principles behind optimal neonatal and paediatric prescribing globally.

The book is divided into two parts. Part I provides concise educational material relating to paediatric clinical pharmacology and optimising how medicines are developed and prescribed for children. It covers research methods for investigating paediatric medicines, from clinical trials through to pharmacoepidemiology and medicinal formulations.

Part II considers key clinical prescribing areas and can be used as a quick reference guide. Each chapter is focused on the key issues in prescribing for a respective clinical specialty or context, with a broad range of subjects from core topics of General Paediatrics through to Paediatric Intensive Care.

This book complements British National Formulary for Children (BNFC).

Prescribing Medicines for Children is indispensable reference guide for anyone involved in prescribing medicines to neonates and children. This includes undergraduate and postgraduate pharmacists, nurses, paediatricians and primary care physicians, academic scientists, and those working in the pharmaceutical industry and drug regulation.
