Uppsala Reports editor
It’s not always easy to choose the best medicine for a child. Some drugs are inappropriate for young patients, while others require special consideration or monitoring. For years, clinicians had only historical dogmas, word of mouth, and their own experience to guide their choices. But a valuable new resource promises to change paediatric prescribing for the better.
In the latest Drug Safety Matters Long Reads episode, host Federica Santoro revisits the article “Improving medication safety for children: The KIDs List”. After the read, we speak to Rachel Meyers and David Hoff, who co-authored the KIDs List, to learn more about their work and the overall challenges of medicines safety in children.
