Did you know about the Medicines Committee?

The RCPCH actively strives to improve medicines safety and influence medication standards nationally. In the coming months the committee will work with education colleagues to redefine the Medicines Safety strategy so it can deliver the training required to future paediatricians.

The RCPCH hosts a Medicines Committee partnered with NPPG with membership from RPS, MHRA, ABPI amongst other. The committee are working policies and statements in the following key areas;

  • Specials
  • Delayed prescribing
  • Sodium Valproate
  • Cannabidiol + THC
  • Brexit

For more information about the committee please visit our webpage (here) where we hope to publish information in each of the above topics shortly. You can find information about the current position on cannabis (here).
