Beschreibung

All registered nurses must have a thorough understanding and a strong knowledge of pharmacology, medicines administration, and the ability to recognise and react to the effects of medicines. Fundamentals of Pharmacology helps nursing and healthcare students develop the skills and confidence required to apply the fundamental principles of pharmacology and to offer safe, competent and compassionate care. Concentrating on the medicines that students are most likely to encounter in real-world practice, this textbook provides concise coverage of pharmacology, essential medicines management principles, legal and ethical issues, drug formulations, analgesics, immunisations, and much more. 

Clinically focused chapters feature defined learning outcomes, multiple-choice questions, practical examples, and full-colour illustrations to aid readers' comprehension of the complexities of pharmacology and care provision. The book utilises a straightforward, student-friendly approach to present 'must-have' information, with contributions from experienced clinicians and academics.  

  • Describes how to use pharmaceutical and prescribing reference guides 
  • Stresses the role and importance of compassionate care throughout 
  • Contains a full range of pedagogical tools which enhance learning and recall

  • Supplemented and supported by a wealth of online extras and resources  

Fundamentals of Pharmacology is essential reading for all nursing students, trainee nursing associates, post-registration nurses taking 'nurse prescribing' or 'non-medical prescribing' modules, and newly qualified nurses and nursing associates looking to better understand pharmacology.
