The inclusion of special-populations data (elderly, children, dosing in renal/hepatic impairment) eliminates any need to purchase extra reference guides. IMF 23 also includes detailed information on commonly used herbals and a brand-new section on nutritionals making IMF the ideal platform for the multi-disciplinary approach to modern medicine.

Medication management becomes ever-more important in residential care and IMF ensures nursing and pharmacy professionals have instant access to the relevant and most accurate medicines information. The complexity of medication for elderly residents in nursing homes makes the drug-interactions and administration notes in IMF simply indispensable.
