Pharmaceutical Press from The Royal Pharmaceutical Society
is today announcing the release of essential drug information focussed on
supporting those working in critical care through the COVID-19 crisis. This is available
to the NHS in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and to
MedicinesComplete users at no charge.
Critical Illness is a new resource planned for publication
next year, providing healthcare professionals working in intensive care units
with specific guidance to help them make confident and effective decisions in
this high-risk environment. Due to these exceptional circumstances, all
available content is being released now.
Press Managing Director, Karen Baxter said “I am incredibly grateful for the
dedication and effort shown by the team at Pharmaceutical Press and our expert
editors who have worked around the clock whilst also continuing their
patient-facing roles to ensure we release this essential content set. We are
glad to be able to support frontline NHS teams with this vital resource at such
a pressured time.”
release of Critical Illness, compiled by consultants and specialist pharmacists
working in critical care comprises 6 monographs and prescribing guidance
considered core for critical care units that follow dosing outside of standard
regimens and are specifically useful for adult COVID-19 patients.
Dr Cathrine McKenzie, editor of Critical Illness and a clinical academic pharmacist with over
25 years’ experience in critical care said “I am really delighted to partner
with my intensivist colleague’s Dr Barbara Philips and Dr Chris Kirwan and
fellow pharmacist Greg Barton to provide, what we hope is a dynamic prescribing
text to support critical care at this time of intense need. I also want to
thank all the antimicrobial and intensive care pharmacists for their input into
this early release and finally to Pharmaceutical Press for their support in
transforming our ideas into a valuable resource.”
