In a recent survey we asked for your feedback about the BNF eNewsletter, and in response to your comments we have redesigned the June edition. We hope you’ll find it clearer, more succinct and easier to find the information you need. Let us know what you think at enewsletter@bnf.org.

This month’s issue contains a useful case study on managing chronic asthma, along with the latest guidance and content updates to the BNF and BNFC.

Print editions: flags and drug-class monographs

In the print editions of BNF Publications, where there is common information relating to a class of drugs, the shared properties are contained in a drug-class monograph.  Drug-class monographs are highlighted by a circled flag symbol beside the title of the drug-class monograph.  The corresponding individual drug monographs usually follow the drug-class monograph, and are highlighted by a non-circled flag symbol.

BNF Beta-adrenoceptor blockers

BNF Atenolol

For example, the monograph for atenolol will display a flag, indicating that the drug-class monograph for Beta-adrenoceptor blockers (systemic), should be consulted in tandem.  For more information, see How to use BNF publications in print in the preface of the current print publications.
