Overview

The only pharmacology resource specifically written by and for nurse practitioners, this new edition provides a greater emphasis on prototype drugs while retaining its comprehensive approach to the pharmacology content needed by the primary care provider. New features include prototype drug lists in the coverage of drug classes that receive expanded coverage, detailed patient teaching guidelines, expanded content in both the geriatric and pediatric chapters, a special icon identifying the Top 200 Drugs, and highlighted Clinical Alerts.
  • Comprehensive coverage is provided of all drugs commonly prescribed and used in the primary care setting.
  • Prototype drugs are presented first in each drug class, with expanded coverage of these agents.
  • Clear explanations describe how each drug in a class differs from its prototype.
  • Detailed information shows how to provide effective patient teaching, as well as how to gain patient compliance.
  • Chapters focus on the practitioner's role in patient teaching, drug action, and drug therapy.
  • Online Resources are provided at the end of each chapter.
  • The Top 200 Drugs are described according to the number of U.S. prescriptions dispensed.
  • Five new units improve the organization of material: Renal/Genitourinary Agents (Unit 8); Psychotropic Agents (Unit 11); Endocrine Agents (Unit 12); Female Reproductive Agents (Unit 13); and Health Promotion (Unit 15).
  • New chapters examine over-the-counter medications, compliance and the therapeutic experiment, overview of the nervous system, substance abuse, treatment of common infections, weight management, and complementary and alternative treatments.
  • Reorganized and redesigned format and headings are more consistent and easy to follow.
  • Content has been expanded in the geriatric and pediatric "special populations" chapters (Ch. 6 and 7).
  • More concise coverage of disease processes features clearer ties to the Mechanism of Action sections.

Editorial Reviews

Benita J. Walton-Moss
This is a comprehensive pharmacology text designed foruse by primary care practitioners. The purpose is to provide basicmedical content integrated with pharmacological principles and nursingapproaches. The book includes journal and Internet resources to aidreaders in updating information for themselves, especially critical fordrug research, given the vast number constantly coming on the market. Although designed for all types of primary care providers, this bookis particularly directed at students and novice clinicians. However,the comprehensive nature of this text functions as an excellent reviewand update for experienced and seasoned clinicians. This book isorganized into two general sections. In the first the foundation foreffective and efficacious pharmacological practice is provided, whilein the second specific drug classes are covered. The first sectionincludes 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 whichprescribing occurs is then presented, including evidence-basedmedicine, clinical trials, and critical decision-making. The firstsection concludes with application of drug information such as how todetermine clinical guidelines, patient education, and prescriptionwriting. In the second section there is a discussion of common drugcategories and the primary care conditions for which they are commonlyused. Whenever possible, drug prototypes are used to minimize needlessrepetition for similar drugs in the same class. I compared this bookto Youngkin's Pharmacotherapeutics: A Primary Care ClinicalGuide (Prentice Hall,1999), which is also designed for primarycare clinicians. Although a good text, it did not provide theenvironmental context as comprehensively as this text does. Drugclasses were described more generically without as much detail onspecific drugs. Overall, I would highly recommend this text be part ofevery primary care clinician's library.
