The text begins with a practical review of the mathematics of drug dosage and principles of pharmacology, followed by drug chapters and streamlined drug monographs that include vital information on each drug, such as generic and trade names, indications, common adverse effects, and typical adult and pediatric dosages. Prepare for the clinical setting all with an emphasis on safe medication administration and prevention of drug errors with Asperheim.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book does have strengths, it highlights where herbal remedies may counteract with pharmacologically prescribed drugs. As many patients are supplementing their diets and health with herbal and non pharmacological agents it is a good idea for the student to have an understanding of these issues. The other strength of this book is the additional web resources." Nurse Education in Practice, March 2009
