One million hits for New Zealand Formulary

Total visitor numbers to the New Zealand Formulary and the Formulary for Children have breached the one million mark since the resources' launch in July 2012 and November 2013 respectively, new figures show.

The New Zealand Formulary (NZF) has been adapted from the British National Formulary (BNF) and provides an up-to-date, comprehensive and NZ-specific medicines information resource.

In addition to full drug monographs, it uses information from the New Zealand Universal List of Medicine (NZULM), which details medicines approved for supply in NZ, whether PHARMAC subsidies apply and any restrictions or conditions that apply.

Publicly accessible online and on portable devices, the plan is to fully integrate the NZF into prescribing and dispensing software.
