Abstract: A poster presentation regarding the update and evaluation of the Maltese medicines handbook. Introduction: Maltese healthcare professionals use the British National Formulary (BNF) as the main formulary. The BNF is therefore used as source of reference for medicinal products and any related information. However, a number of products which are available on the Maltese market are not listed in the BNF resulting in lack of information on such products. The Maltese Medicines Handbook (MMH) is therefore designed to include these medicinal products. Aims: The aim of this study was to update the formulary to its fourth version. An online version was also launched and this was an innovation when compared to previous similar studies. The use of both the handbook version and the online version was assessed amongst Maltese healthcare professionals especially pharmacists and doctors.
