Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This text presents a totally nursing-focused framework for teaching and learning nursing pharmacology, and "places the patient" at the center of all drug and drug administration decisions and considerations. The book presents core drug knowledge using prototypes of different drug classes and emphasizes core patient variables that influence the patient's response to therapy. Features include abundant review questions, concept maps, drug summary tables, drug interaction tables, and critical thinking scenarios that teach students how to apply pharmacology knowledge to patient care.

This thoroughly updated Third Edition covers newly approved drugs, has separate chapters on drugs affecting fungal and viral infections, and includes more pathophysiology information. Black Box warnings from the FDA labels have been added to the discussion of each prototype when applicable, and safety alerts have been added to emphasize prevention of common medication errors.

A companion Website offers student and instructor ancillaries including NCLEX®-style chapter review questions, pathophysiology animations, medication administration videos, and dosage calculation quizzes.

Synopsis:

Nursing Pharmacology Made Incredibly Easy, 3rd Edition, provides the nursing student and practicing nurse with information about how drugs act and interact in the treatment of disease. The book focuses on mechanisms of drug action; details specific drugs by pharmacologic class; reviews the nursing process related to each drug category for all body systems, plus pain medications, anti-infective drugs, and cancer drugs; and highlights potentially dangerous interactions, including drug-herb interactions. It does all of this in the award-winning, lighthearted Incredibly Easy! style that makes intimidating concepts thoroughly approachable.

Synopsis:

This undergraduate nursing pharmacology text is designed to "place the patient" at the center of all drug and drug administration decisions and considerations. Drug Therapy in Nursing, Third Edition, is unique in that it presents a totally nursing-focused framework to support the teaching and learning of nursing pharmacology. Learning the pharmacology facts about different drug prototypes is only half of the knowledge nursing students need. Because they're learning to be nurses, they must understand how to apply this knowledge to patient care. Systematic organization, prototype approach, and effective pedagogy present nursing pharmacology in a readable and clinically applicable style.

Synopsis:

Organized by body system, this fully revised Second Edition places the patient at the center of all drug and drug administration choices. The book bridges the gap between basic science and clinical practice and shows how today's therapeutic agents can address each patient's specific needs. Features include critical thinking scenarios, abundant review questions, color concept maps, drug summary tables, Lifespan Alerts regarding pediatric, childbearing, and geriatric patients, and Web Alerts directing readers to Internet information. A "Focus on Research" feature provides the groundwork for evidence-based decision-making. Appendices cover Canadian drugs, diagnostic imaging agents, enteral nutrition supplements, antidotes, immunizations, and more.
