Overview

Pharmacology for the Primary Care Provider is a classroom text designed to transition into the clinical arena as your students begin practicing and prescribing. This practical book brings together the best and most important information from the medical, nursing, and pharmacology disciplines, making it an invaluable learning tool and an important companion text throughout the beginning years of clinical practice. Students will review professional roles and basic practical information about drug categories and what must be considered in prescribing and educating patients. The essentials are distilled into a thorough discussion of drug prototypes. Many helpful charts, figures, and clinical decison-making algorithms aid vomprehension.

FEATURES:

  • Helps students appreciate and understand evidence-based medicine and the development of clinical treatment algorithms and guidelines.
  • Provides a summary of important things both the practitioner and the patient should know about client-initiated and client-controlled medications (including over-the-counter drugs, alternative medicines, and herbal products.)
  • Presents detailed information on how to provide effective patient teaching about medications. This information also helps meet some of the accreditation objectives mandated by the National League for Nursing.
  • Contains pharmacokinetic tables listing the latest information on drug interactions from the Cytochrome P450 enzyme system - new information now being introduced into curriculum for all practitioners.
  • Lists resources and references in each chapter so students always have access to the latest information.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Benita J. Walton-Moss, DNS, MSN (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This is a comprehensive pharmacology text designed for use by primary care practitioners.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide basic medical content integrated with pharmacological principles and nursing approaches. The book includes journal and Internet resources to aid readers in updating information for themselves, especially critical for drug research, given the vast number constantly coming on the market.
Audience: Although designed for all types of primary care providers, this book is particularly directed at students and novice clinicians. However, the comprehensive nature of this text functions as an excellent review and update for experienced and seasoned clinicians.
Features: This book is organized into two general sections. In the first the foundation for effective and efficacious pharmacological practice is provided, while in the second specific drug classes are covered. The first section includes focus areas on prescriptive authority, basic drug mechanics, and important variations by age group or life change (e.g., pregnancy, nursing, and menopause). The environmental context within which prescribing occurs is then presented, including evidence-based medicine, clinical trials, and critical decision-making. The first section concludes with application of drug information such as how to determine clinical guidelines, patient education, and prescription writing. In the second section there is a discussion of common drug categories and the primary care conditions for which they are commonly used. Whenever possible, drug prototypes are used to minimize needless repetition for similar drugs in the same class.
Assessment: I compared this book to Youngkin's Pharmacotherapeutics: A Primary Care Clinical Guide (Prentice Hall, 1999), which is also designed for primary care clinicians. Although a good text, it did not provide the environmental context as comprehensively as this text does. Drug classes were described more generically without as much detail on specific drugs. Overall, I would highly recommend this text be part of every primary care clinician's library.
