Kieran Le Plastrier, Peter D Jones, Treasure M McGuire

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportResearchpeer-review


The community pharmacy guideline for the management of pain and fever in children utilising non-prescription medicines and non-pharmacological interventions has been developed by the Australasian College of Pharmacy to
help guide pharmacists providing care in their primary health setting. Community pharmacy is an accessible and affordable primary health care provider and is often the first health provider consulted when a child has pain and/or fever.

The guideline provides evidence-based advice for the pharmacist to utilise when recommending non-prescription
medicines and providing advice to a caregiver requesting a product and/or guidance on the management of pain
and/or fever in children, including lifestyle advice and when the child should be referred for medical assessment.
