Paediatric NIMC

Hospitals are strongly recommended to evaluate their paediatric NIMC use. Suitable indicators include the Quality Use of Medicines Indicators in Australian Hospitals, which has been developed by the NSW Therapeutic Advisory Group and Clinical Excellence Commission.

The Children’s Hospitals Australasia’s Medication Safety Expert Reference Group recommends using the following documents as a minimum, to form part of a more comprehensive evaluation of the paediatric NIMC nationally.

In 2009, the Commission held a seminar on safe implementation of the paediatric NIMC in hospitals. The report is available to download.
