    PharmacopoeiaBookjpgImportant information regarding the
    RCH Paediatric Pharmacopoeia:

    The 13th edition and 1st Edition of The Royal Children's Hospital (RCH) Paediatric Pharmacopoeia and Pocket Prescriber have been in circulation for a number of years.
    After careful consideration, RCH has decided against writing an updated edition of the Paediatric Pharmacopoeia.

    The Australian Medicines Handbook (AMH) Pty Ltd have released a
    Children's Dosing Companion (CDC)  
    This reference is NOT an RCH product, so any questions regarding the AMH CDC will need to be directed to the AMH

    The AMH CDC project involved the development of a paediatric dosing resource containing the most commonly used medicines in Australia for children up to 18 years of age. The resource will be for use by all Australian health practitioners prescribing, dispensing and administering medicines to children, and is listed by the Pharmacy Board of Australia as a mandatory reference text for pharmacists.

    The RCH will continue to provide the 13th edition of the RCH Paediatric Pharmacopoiea, and 1st Edition Pocket Prescriber until further notice.
