Pharmacology for Nurses links a unique approach to teaching pharmacology with Canadian content to deliver an outstanding manual for nursing students. A holistic, pathophysiological approach runs throughout the text, which places drugs in context with how they are used therapeutically, and organizes them by body systems and diseases. This gives students a clear picture of the importance of pharmacology to diseases and ultimately to patient care. Detailed information on the drug classifications used to treat diseases is also included.
The practice of pharmacology in Canada is reflected comprehensively throughout Pharmacology for Nurses . This coverage includes statistics, legal and ethical issues, generic drugs, and cultural considerations that are all particular to Canada. As well, material on Canadian legislation and regulatory bodies, including coverage of natural health product regulations, the Canadian Cardiovascular Society guidelines, and the Canadian Nurses Association’s standards of practice, is incorporated throughout.
