Description:
Dr Shonagh Mooney won first prize at the Quality in Practice Awards 2012 for a project she ran on anti-pyretics. This project showed that in many cases parents were not aware of how often ibuprofen and paracetamol could be given to children and that more accurate dosing of Ibuprofen and Paracetamol could be achieved by dosing according to weight rather than age. The quick reference guide includes: •Advice sheet for managing a child's fever •Medicine Chart for parents •Ibuprofen dosing chart (according to weight) •Paracetamol dosing chart (according to weight)
