Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Theresa A Hart, AAS, BSN, MSNc (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This is a study guide meant to accompany the text of Basic Pharmacology for Nurses by the same authors. The book provides chapters that have a syllabus, a review sheet of questions and answers and a practice quiz. The last edition was published in 2001.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a companion study guide for the text used in a pharmacology course. The book provides methods for study and review beginning with the nursing process through individual classifications of drugs that include chapters on nutrition and herbal supplements. The study guide provides various formats for study and NCLEX preparation, worthy objectives.
Audience: The study guide was designed to augment the text for nursing students. It addresses this audience well. One author is a RPh, PharmD and the other is a MSN at a community college. Additional support of clinical experts would have been a benefit to the contents of the text.
Features: The study guide provides chapters on different drug classifications. Each chapter is composed of a syllabus, a review sheet of questions and answers and a practice quiz. The study guide is three-hole punched so that it can be kept in a binder. The answers to the reviews and practice quizzes are in the back of the study guide without rationale. Without the rationale for answers, review of critical thinking skills for NCLEX is difficult. The study guide spends 12 of 48 chapters on principles and process of medication administration which gives a solid foundation for the students. Each chapter has Web research activities, but the links are not the most authoritative. Using the exercise of Web research should develop good Web research skills, not excursions into the ethernet.
Assessment: The format of the book has the advantage of offering varied ways of studying and learning. The Web links are weak resources for new nursing students. The section on drugs used in obstetrics is very weak in the use and standards of care related to the drugs. I would recommend more expert clinical advice on the chapter content for the next edition.
Laurel A. Eisenhauer
This is a basic introductory pharmacology textcurrently in its 11th edition. It was originally published in1957. The original aim of the first edition related to concern forthe ""administration of medication with concern for safety andprecision and attention to physiologic factors"" has been expanded tohave increased emphasis on the need for monitoring and for patientteaching to ensure safe self-care. Although there is material on theseaspects, especially as applied to the acute care or institutionalsetting, there is little on aspects of home care and psychosocialissues such as noncompliance. Although the audience is not specifiedby the authors, it would appear to appropriate for students preparingfor a technical level of practice. The author team is well qualified,with one a pharmacist and the other a nursing faculty member in anassociate degree program. Consultants from LPN and baccalaureateprograms are also used. This text is well illustrated with colorphotos and figures. Color is used liberally in the illustrations andalso within the text to highlight organization and pedagogicalfeatures. Content related to drugs is arranged according to patientcondition. The nursing process is used as a framework; a sixth right-- the need to document -- is a useful point of emphasis. Noreferences are provided. The text comes in softcover and is easy tohandle and carry. This basic text in pharmacology provides anintroduction to safe drug administration and an introductoryunderstanding of pharmacology. The most appropriate audience would beLPN or ADN students. The discussion of drug therapy is arranged bypatient conditions; the nursing process is used to discuss the nursingaspects. Thereis excellent use of color and illustrations to enhancethe pedagogical features.
