Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RCP, RRT (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: This update to an introductory pharmacology book last revised in 2008 comes with a workbook with additional exercises correlated to chapters in the main book.
Purpose: The purpose is to help students master not only the principles of pharmacology, but also the critical thinking skills necessary to safely administer medications to patients. Given the emphasis on patient safety, these are worthy objectives.
Audience: It is written primarily for allied health professionals who use medications on a day-to-day basis in ambulatory and some inpatient care settings.
Features: Five sections cover general aspects of pharmacology, mathematics for pharmacology and dosage calculations, medication administration, pharmacology for multisystem application, and medications related to body systems. Each chapter begins with a list of objectives, followed by a clinical scenario, key terms (also bolded in blue font within the text). Throughout, the book uses "Did You Know?" and "Important Facts" boxes, images, drawings, tables, and figures to illustrate or emphasize important concepts. Chapters end with a summary, critical thinking exercises, and review questions. The book ends with two appendixes (answers to chapter questions and drug interactions), a glossary, and an index.
Assessment: This book is well thought out and a pleasure to read. It is highly recommended for all university/college libraries.
