Injectable Drugs Guide

Injectable Drugs Guide provides a user-friendly, single point of reference for healthcare professionals in the safe and effective prescribing, administration and monitoring of injectable medicines. The guide consists of an A-Z listing of injectable drugs in monograph format.

Each monograph covers pre-treatment checks, dosing regimens, preparation and administration, compatibility and stability information, monitoring requirements during treatment, and side effects, interactions and pharmacokinetic information.

Designed to support the National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) risk assessment process, each drug has a risk rating, with its text reviewed and assessed at a number of hospital pharmacies.
