Join us for this special webinar to launch the new edition of our Safe use of medicines guide.

Participants will learn about new approaches and developments in the safe management of medicines and receive practical advice on how to use the updated guide in children’s palliative care settings. We’ll be hearing from the editors and contributors to the new guide, and there will be a panel Q&A session with the authors. Submit your own questions to the panel here.
