RCPCH supports national approach for standardised intravenous infusion concentrations in children

The Neonatal and Paediatric Pharmacist Group (NPPG), with support from the Royal College of Paediatrics of Child Health (RCPCH) has produced a proposal for a national approach for standardised intravenous infusion concentrations in children.

We are pleased to endorse and support the framework document, which provides a list of standardised intravenous infusion concentrations for use in infants over 2 kg and children.

We encourage all practitioners and providers of care to children and young people to review and implement the recommendations in this document. Further, we commend this framework to those national organisations committed to improve safety of medicines in children.
