Overview

This text's systematic organization, prototype approach, and effective pedagogy will help your students make sense of the complex world of pharmacology. Written by nursing pharmacology faculty, this text takes a totally fresh approach to the teaching of pharmacology. It is the first ever to fully integrate pharmacology with the nursing process and present it in a framework that encourages students to 'think' nursing pharmacology. Its goal is to maximize therapeutic effect and minimize adverse reactions; it accomplishes this through the use of a nursing management map to help students understand how to customize patient drug therapy, according to drug and patient variables. Units are organized by body system and chapters by drug classification and therapeutic uses; text uses the prototype approach to teach drug information. Adult, pediatric, geriatric and pregnant and lactating patient considerations. Concept Maps, Critical Thinking Clinical Scenarios, End-of-Chapter Questions for Study & Review, Illustrated Physiology Displays and Selected Drug Tables skillfully support the text discussions. A student workbook as well as a Booklink Web Site are also available.
