Nurses are in the forefront when it comes to safe medication use and counseling patients. This new edition of PDR Nurse's Drug Handbook provides all nursing professionals in any clinical setting with an accurate, up-to-date, and easily accessible guide to the most commonly prescribed drugs — over 1,500 in this edition. Based on the FDA-approved labeling, PDR’s staff of pharmacists have developed concise monographs that highlight the most important information on each drug, including its approved use, dosages, interactions with other drugs, food and alcohol, side effects, safety information, and more. In addition, clear, straightforward nursing considerations provide guidance on proper patient assessment and monitoring as well as patient counseling and drug administration.
