British National Formulary for Children (BNFC)

Published jointly by the BMJ Publishing Group Ltd and RPS Publishing (a wholly-owned publishing organization of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain), compiled with the advice of clinical experts, the British National Formulary for Children (BNFC) provides essential practical information to all healthcare professionals involved in the prescribing, dispensing, monitoring, and administration of medicines to children. It encourages the safe, effective, and appropriate use of medicines for the management of childhood conditions. Information in BNFC has been validated against emerging evidence, best practice guidelines, and advice from a network of clinical experts. The text is published under the authority of a Pediatrics Formulary Committee. As many medicines are not licensed for use in children, BNFC includes authoritative advice on licensed as well as unlicensed and “off-label” use of medicines for children from birth up to the age of 18 years For Non-DHA/Guests [Click here] to access the resource without authentication.
