A Maltese Medicines Handbook - 30/3/2006

A Maltese Medicines Handbook
The Department of Pharmacy has published an addendum to the British National Formulary (BNF) called A Maltese Medicines Handbook. The BNF, which provides health care professionals with information about drugs available in the UK, is also used as a major reference source by Maltese healthcare professionals.

The Maltese addendum to the BNF is compiled by Stephany Micallef as part of a project carried out in partial fulfilment of the requirements of the Bachelor of Pharmacy course and gives details of medicines on the Maltese market which are not used in the UK and therefore not found in the BNF proper.

The study was carried out under the supervision of Dr Lilian Azzopardi, senior lecturer at the Department of Pharmacy. The presentation style of the Maltese Medicines Handbook was adapted from the BNF with the permission of its co-publishers: the British Medical Association and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain. The book was presented to the Chancellor of the University, Professor John Rizzo Naudi and the Rector, Professor Roger Ellul Micallef, both medical doctors, during the opening of the Pharmacy Symposium last Monday.
