SickKids Drug Handbook and Formulary

The 2017 SickKids Drug Handbook and Formulary includes extensive information on drug selection, dosage guidelines for neonates, infants, and older children, and guidelines for drug usage and monitoring.

The new edition covers a wide array of topics including over 80 updates and additions to the drug monographs and guidelines on neonatal seizure management, empiric antibiotic treatment of community-acquired pneumonia and otitis media, fever management in haematology/oncology patients, sickle cell disease management, patient-controlled analgesia (PCA), guidelines for use of low molecular weight heparin, parenteral nutrition, and therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM).

The contents of the Formulary reflect, wherever possible, evidence-based medication use, as well as the expertise of the SickKids medical and pharmacy staff. Given that reliable, scientific information is often limited or difficult to access in a paediatric health care environment, the goal of the Formulary is to provide a useful resource to promote the optimal and safe use of medication in children.

Next planned edition to be published in 2019.
