BNF for Children 2008

The British National Formulary for Children has been updated, published and made available online.

Hard copies can be ordered from the publishers however many NHS staff will already have received a free hard copy through usual channels and can also access the online version at http://www.bnfc.nhs.uk.

Updates in this revision include:

  • Details of a new immunisation schedule for vaccination against the human papilloma virus
  • Revised guidance on the treatment and prevention of urinary-tract infections
  • New advice on the use of all forms of contraception, including emergency contraception
  • A new section on the treatment of pelvic inflammatory disease to further expand the guidance on management of sexually transmitted infections
  • More information on the administration of continuous IV infusions in neonatal intensive care to reduce medication errors when calculating infusion rates

Action: BNFC is the primary source of prescribing information when prescribing to all children up to the age of 18 years.
