The content has been carefully validated by a network of paediatric experts and the process is overseen by a paediatric formulary committee. To make it even easier to find the information you need, the content in the new BNFC 2015-2016 has been restructured. The BNF for Children 2015-2016 has been revised and revalidated to reflect changes in product availability, emerging safety concerns and shifts in clinical practice.
