As per the DOH WA (full memorandum here):
The Paediatric Pharmacopeia 13th Edition published by RCH Melbourne in 2002, was previously regarded as the standard reference for paediatric dosing. However, there has been minimal updates to the hard copy version and this reference is now considered out of date.
The AMH Children’s Dosing Companion (AMH CDC) was developed at a national level with input from the major paediatric sites across Australia with the intention of providing a consistent medication dosing reference for paediatric patients across all Australian paediatric health sites. Initially published in 2013, with continual updates of the online version. The AMH CDC is now the preferred reference for paediatric doses.
Here is some information on how to download the AMH CDC to your smartphone.
