Key facts:
1. Children are not small adults, their bodies respond to medicines differently.
They need medicines tailored to their age, body weight and physiological condition.
2. Few medicines exist in formulations developed specifically for children.
3. Worldwide, many medicines for children are used ‘off-label’, that is their effects on children have not been studied and they are not licenced for use in children.

This masterclass will explore what is being done to address these key facts and to improve the availability of age-appropriate medicines for children. The session will include both a lecture and practical component to ensure that participants understand typical issues faced in administering medicines to children, both in the UK and worldwide.
