Overview

PHARMACOLOGIC BASIS OF NURSING PRACTICE offers students just the right balance of coverage, depth, and explanation with unequaled clarity. Emphasizing clear rationales for drug therapy, it relates the physiologic factors of disease processes to drug mechanisms. Each chapter begins with objectives, chapter overview, key terms, and key drugs, and ends with application and critical thinking questions that directly apply to nursing practice. Revisions include highlighted home and community care content, boxes summarizing alternative therapies, case studies with critical thinking questions, and more student-friendly features, including perforated student worksheets in the back of the book.

(Includes FREE student worksheets and MERLIN website at:www.harcourthealth.com/MERLIN/Clark/pharmbasis/)

The book contains predominantly two-color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.
