This ideal starter text for student nurses makes pharmacology less intimidating by focusing on the knowledge needed at pre-registration level in order to practice as a newly qualified nurse. Noted for its clear layout and jargon-free language, this updated edition introduces pharmacology in a friendly, informative way. The book does not assume previous knowledge of pharmacology, or a level of confidence with maths and drugs calculations. This new edition has been carefully expanded to include a new chapter introducing drug calculations and measurements as well as more detail on drugs used in chronic conditions, as well as more on pharmacology for the older patient and for other specific groups such as children, pregnant women or those with minor illness. More case scenarios have been added to encourage nurses to apply knowledge to a range of different people with a range of needs. The book contains: 90 calculations and 100 multiple choice questions to help perfect your skills and assess learning Clinical tip boxes linking pharmacology to the role of the nurse 35 patient scenarios across a range of clinical settings References to key clinical tests and the latest NICE guidelines The book emphasises application of pharmacological principles to all areas of practice including drug action, interaction and side effects, and is useful to all students of pharmacology whether as part of a 3 year course, post-qualifying course, top-up course or standalone module. "This latest edition of a key textbook on pharmacology for nurses has moved forward from previous editions by becoming stronger by the inclusion of a greater scope of material so maintaining its place as an essential pharmacology book for current and forthcoming nursing students in all clinical practice fields to give them a strong evidence base for their studies and clinical practice. The addition of a chapter on drug calculations is an essential step forward in this edition for all students as this is a key component within all current nursing degree programmes. The continued use of case studies and clinical tips makes learning fun both as an individual but also in small learning groups of students. It follows a clear pathway for learning: it is easy to read, is clearly written and shows the importance of aspects of pharmacology within the work of a nurse. " Keith Booles, Senior Nurse Lecturer/Module Leader, Faculty of Health Sciences, Staffordshire University, UK "With the ever evolving role of nursing it is essential, for safe practice, that all nurses have knowledge of pharmacology. This latest edition of essentials of pharmacology for nurses offers just that. This is a well presented book with logical, thought out chapters that enable the reader to learn at their own pace. Although aimed at undergraduate nurses, I feel that this is a good base to build on pharmacology knowledge, not only for undergraduate nurses but also trained nurses."

This ideal starter text for student nurses in pharmacology is now into its 4th edition. It makes pharmacology less intimidating by focusing on the knowledge needed at pre-registration level in order to safely and competently practice as a newly qualified nurse. Praised for its helpful layout and jargon-free language, this updated edition introduces pharmacology in a friendly, informative way, without assuming previous knowledge or a level of confidence in numeracy. This new edition has been carefully expanded to include new chapters on cardiovascular pharmacology and chemotherapy in cancer nursing. There are more details on drugs used in chronic and long-term conditions applied to nursing competencies and standards. It incorporates the new 2018 NMC standards for nursing education and links to practice guidelines. Additional case scenarios have been added spanning all areas of practice and include adult, elderly care, child, mental health and learning disability applications. This allows nurses to apply their knowledge to a range of different people with varying and complex needs to enhance their application to practice. The book contains: • 120 calculations and 130 multiple choice questions to assist you in assessing your learning as you work through each chapter • Clinical tips boxes linking pharmacology to nursing practice • 50 person centred case scenarios across a range of practice settings • References to key standards and guidelines "The book also emphasises the application of the principles of pharmacology to all areas of practice and includes; drug action, drug interactions, side effects and adverse reactions. It is useful for all pre-registration students and those on post qualifying or continuing professional development courses where pharmacology is a component. Overall, this book is an excellent resource for healthcare students that will support their learning throughout their training and beyond. It covers fundamental concepts of how the major classes of medications exert their therapeutic effect, but also how side effects and adverse reactions can occur. Chapters on legal aspects of medication administration and drug calculations enhance this usefulness of this book – all of which are supported by example questions, calculations and clinical ‘tips’. This book has been fully updated to reflect the 2018 NMC standards and as such provides a one-stop shop for any students studying safe administration of medications." Dr Andy Powell, Physiology Lead for Nursing Birmingham City University "The outlay of the chapters is easily navigated and the level of the knowledge that the book starts at is at a basic level enough for any student nurse from year 1-3 to start with and builds in complexity. They are in lovely bite-size chunks that are easy to read and easily understood. The 10 MCQ’s at the end of a chapter are a very useful method of chapter consolidation and the case studies further reinforce learning."

"The book offers a unique and engaging approach to an important subject that most students find daunting. Realistic case scenarios are used as a catalyst to introduce information and concepts that underpin practice. The presentation style supports the active participation of the student with the inclusion of questions at the beginning of each topic offering a platform to explore key areas whilst referring to the scenario. I highly recommend it to pre-registered student nurses." Kris Paget, Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Health, Social Work and Education, Kingston University, UK "This collection of case studies provides a unique and user friendly guide to commonly seen pharmacological therapies and treatment options across the lifespan. The case studies have been carefully selected to provide the diverse care needs of complex disease processes in a person centred way. Each case study is relevant to the role of the Nurse and will provide essential and core information whether nurses are working in either a medical or surgical clinical setting. Government Health Care Directives provide the essential clinical evidence based theory necessary to promote medicine adherence and each chapter provides the relevant pathophysiology which is essential to underpin the safe administration of medication therapies. The role of the nurse in medicine management with respect to patient education and the professional responsibilities of monitoring and evaluating complex medication therapies is presented in each case study. This provides an holistic approach to the care of patients receiving complex medication therapies." Barry Ricketts, Senior Lecturer, Adult Nursing, Oxford Brookes University, UK
