Perscribing Medicine For Children  (

This handbook on medicines for children complements the British National Formulary for Children (BNFC) and will facilitate translation of essential pharmacological principles into good prescribing practice. The overall aim of the text is to promote safe and effective prescribing in paediatrics. This includes how to avoid medication errors and adverse drug reactions in children, and harnesses the expertise of paediatricians and pharmacists with extensive experience in the field. The variation in prescribing habits between countries has been considered when developing the text, which benefits from international authorship and focuses on shared principles that underpin rational prescribing in paediatrics and neonatology.

The target readership comprises all professionals who prescribe for children in any context. This includes doctors working in paediatrics or neonatology (training grades and consultants), GPs, pharmacists and specialist nurse prescribers. The development of this book was made possible by Global Research in Paediatrics (GRiP),, which was an EU-funded network of scientists aiming to stimulate and facilitate the development and safe use of medicines in children. GRiP enabled the creation of a leading research network in the field of paediatric clinical pharmacology.

It is hoped that this book will contribute to the lasting legacy of GRiP in promoting enhanced understanding of paediatric clinical pharmacology, with the ultimate aim of improving the safety and efficacy of medicines for children across the globe.
