About the Event
Our speakers shared their experiences of working across the healthcare interface to support safe prescribing and administration of medicines to children.
Why it’s important
Children are not just small adults and being able to cater for their specific healthcare needs ensures they can get the most benefit from medicine they need to take.
What was covered
The webinar focused on:
- The key considerations when choosing an oral liquid medicine for a child.
- The challenges and safety issues related to prescribing and supplying liquid medicines for children.
- Increasing awareness and understanding of the need for standardised concentrations, highlighting the work at local and national levels that aims to address this.
