Aimed at health professionals involved with prescribing, monitoring, supplying, and administering medicines, this essential reference offers up-to-date, practical guidance.
The BNF details medicines prescribed in the UK, with special reference to their uses, cautions, contra-indications, side-effects, doses and relative costs.
It enables healthcare professionals to maximise the benefits of drug treatment and minimise the risks, while encouraging good compliance with treatment.
Updated every six months, the BNF evaluates clinical evidence from diverse sources. The information is validated by a network of clinical experts and is published under the authority of a Joint Formulary Committee. The BNF reflects current best practice as well as legal and professional guidelines relating to the use of medicines.
