The public health agenda is embedded in pharmacy, yet topics such as emergency contraception or stop smoking support are as prevalent as ever.

What's new in BNF 73? distance learning programme launched

We have launched a new distance learning programme to explore changes in the latest edition of BNF. What's new in BNF 73? is an interactive PDF, which contains ten case studies. These case studies will help you to locate information on changes in the latest BNF, identify situations in a healthcare setting where the management of a patient is affected by these changes, and recommend appropriate courses of action for the patient.

This learning is intended for the whole pharmacy team, and will show how new recommendations and information in the BNF will affect clinical practice.
