In this podcast, James Cave (Editor-in-Chief) and David Phizackerley (Deputy Editor) provide an overview of the August issue of DTB (https://dtb.bmj.com/content/59/8). The editors talk about the MHRA's decision to reverse the EMA's decision and allow boron-containing chloramphenicol eye drops to be used in children aged below 2 years. They discuss a scheme in England that allows hospital staff to refer patients who would benefit from extra guidance around their medicines regimen for support from a community pharmacy (https://dtb.bmj.com/content/59/8/114). They also highlight the risk from concurrent opioid and benzodiazepine use (https://dtb.bmj.com/content/59/8/116), and talk about home blood pressure monitoring (https://dtb.bmj.com/content/59/8/119).
