ACCP Releases New Pediatric Medication Education Text

Coming this month to the ACCP on-site bookstore at the ACCP/ESCP International Congress in Orlando as well as to our online bookstore at is the Pediatric Medication Education Text, Fifth edition, written by Marcia L. Buck, Pharm.D., FCCP, and Anne E. Hendrick, Pharm.D. For 10 years, this resource has been the go-to publication for practitioners needing quick access to medication information, which can, in turn, be passed on to pediatric caregivers. The 2009 fifth edition is now available in the even-more-accessible CD-ROM format. From your desktop, these one-page drug information sheets can quickly be located and printed to provide caregivers easy-to-understand instructions.

This unique medication-counseling resource, developed for families with children younger than 12 years, offers information for each drug in both English and Spanish. The format is specifically designed to provide valuable educational information without overwhelming families with too much information.

The Pediatric Medication Education Text can be your source for simple, straightforward medication information on 389 alphabetically organized medications focusing on products most often prescribed at hospital discharge or during pediatric ambulatory care visits. The question-and-answer format meets the requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for providing written medication information to patients.
