Making meds safer and more accessible for children
75-80% of all medications currently prescribed in Canadian pediatric hospitals are administered off-label.
Have you ever experienced difficulty administering a drug to a child? Such as, the child:
- Spitting out the medication?
- Pulling a fit, refusing to take the medication?
- Getting the wrong dose?
We would like to hear from you!
