From the publisher. BNF for Children (BNFC) provides essential, practical information to all health care professionals involved in the prescribing, dispensing, monitoring, and administration of medicines to children. The book 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 Paediatric 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 in children, from birth to age 18 years. Of note, BNFC is also available in an up-to-date online version through the online knowledge resource service
