The Australian Injectable Drugs Handbook (AIDH) is Australia’s indispensable nursing resource to manage risk and ensure quality care in every ward of every hospital and health care setting in Australia.

With the 8th Edition of AIDH now available, SHPA has been reaching out to Nurses around the country to ensure all earlier copies of the ‘yellow book’ have been replaced.

It’s your frontline defence to minimise risk of incorrect preparation of medicines through clear and concise preparation and administration instructions.

As there are significant changes to many of the 500+ monographs in the new edition – including information on 50 new medicines, plus new sections on smart pumps, flushing of IV lines and devices, management of extravasation and CoPAT – all nurses need to have AIDH8 within reach at all times, in medicine preparation rooms, in theatres and at nursing stations.
New AIDH8 highlights:

  • up-to-date and vital information on more than 500 injectable medicines
     
  • information on more than 50 new medicines, with more than 150 monographs now including paediatric information
     
  • new sections on smart pumps, flushing of IV lines and devices, management of extravasation and community-based parenteral antimicrobial therapy (CoPAT)
     
  • stability data for 21 antimicrobials most frequently used in Hospital in the Home (HITH) services or OPAT programs, crucial for ensuring the standard of care is no less than that provided in hospitals.
