The NOAH Compendium App has been fully updated to mirror the 2019 edition of the NOAH Compendium of Data Sheets for Animal Medicines, which just been published with a free copy posted to every veterinary practice in the UK.
The NOAH Compendium is also available online HERE.
The book remains a welcome and essential information source for vets in practice and other prescribers and users of animal medicines, while the app gives easy off-line access. A special edition of the book commissioned by AMTRA will be also available for its SQPs shortly.
NOAH chief executive Dawn Howard said: “The NOAH Compendium, in all its formats, remains a major part of NOAH’s efforts to ensure appropriate access and responsible use of medicines for all animals. We are pleased it is even more comprehensive this year, as we continue to expand its list of contributors.
“Every NOAH member, as well as the non-member participants in the NOAH Compendium, is a signatory to the NOAH Code of Practice on Promotion, which demonstrates their commitment to operate above and beyond any regulatory requirements.
She added: “As well as product datasheets, the Compendium includes another vital resource – the contact details for each participating company. Company veterinary and technical advisors have detailed knowledge about their company’s medicines. The NOAH Code includes the requirement for NCAH qualification for NOAH staff in technical dialogue with prescribers and users of animal medicines – meaning their advice can be regarded as a valuable and trusted resource. They are ready to talk to prescribers about the use of a medicine in a particular animal or in a particular situation, as well as to explain any queries about the data sheet,” she said.
Veterinary practices that have not yet received a copy, perhaps because they are new or have changed address in the past year should email NOAH (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Extra copies are also available to order now, for £47.50. Special prices are also available for bulk orders.
