Pharmacology and medicines management for nurses

George Downie, Jean Mackenzie, Arthur Williams ; in association with Caroline Hind

An understanding of medicines and their effects on patients remains a crucial area of nursing knowledge. This book provides a thorough foundation upon which nurses can build their clinical experience to achieve competence. It not only provides information on the actions of drugs on the body but also gives clear guidance on the practical aspects of medicines management in both hospital and community. Organisation of the text broadly follows the British National Formulary for ease of use. This unique approach of combining clinical pharmacology, medicines management and the provision of practice advice will be invaluable to pre-registration students at both degree and diploma level as well as registered nurses in practice and nurses returning to practice after a career break.
