The BNF is a joint publication of the RPS and the British Medical Association. It provides authoritative, independent guidance on best practice with clinically validated drug information to a range of healthcare professionals including pharmacists.
It contains key information relating to medicines and covers areas such as selection, prescribing, monitoring, dispensing and administration. This links to the process of using medicines rationally. How to use the BNF is a section at the start of the BNF with details on using the BNF more effectively.
It should be particularly useful for pharmacists when undertaking clinical checks and providing advice.
