Paediatric Pharmacist: BNF for Children – Paediatric Formulary Committee

This is a non-paid external voluntary position to the BNF for Children governing committee.


CONTEXT
BNF Publications (the BNF, BNF for Children and Nurse Prescribers’ Formulary) are used within the NHS and beyond to provide prescribers, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals with sound up-to-date information about the use of medicines, ensuring that patients get the best care.

ROLE SUMMARY
The Paediatric Formulary Committee (PFC) is responsible for the clinical governance of the BNF for Children. This oversight involves review and sign-off of certain additions and changes to BNF for Children content, via electronic forums (monthly) and face-to-face discussions (twice a year in London); the PFC also has a remit to review clinical editorial policies.

As a clinical member of the committee your main responsibilities are:

  • Reviewing amendments to content within BNF for Children (either via electronic forum or at biannual face-to-face meetings)
  • Contributing to committee discussion to ensure that process is followed, and that decisions are made in the best interests of patients, healthcare professionals and the publication;
  • Contributing to discussion around direction and development of clinical editorial policy;
  • Acting as an ambassador for the BNF for Children.

  • Good communication and team-working skills.
  • Experience of working with research literature together with a willingness to consider clinical data and make decisions.
