  • Emphasizes patient education and health promotion with easy-to-recognize Patient Education and Health Promotion headings and reproducible Patient Self-Assessment forms.

  • UNIQUE! New coverage of drugs for weight management are included in the expanded Nutrition and Weight Management chapter (Chapter 49).
  • Increased emphasis on medication safety prepares nurses to practice more safely in a clinical environment that is both more pressured and more focused than ever on reducing drug errors. The increased emphasis includes Chapter 7: Principles of Medication Administration, do-not-confuse icons, and an icon to signal ISMP's "high alert" drugs.
  • As the focus on pharmacology on the NCLEX continues to increase, chapter-ending Medication Safety Review sections have been refocused into three types of application-level questions, including Dosage Calculation Review Questions, Review Questions for the NCLEX Examination, and Critical Thinking Activities.
  • Evidence-based practice content is now highlighted with a distinctive icon in the margins.
  • The antimicrobial chapter has been broken into three smaller chapters (Antimicrobiotics, Antifungals, Antivirals) resulting in a less overwhelming reading on this topic.
  • Updated coverage of the most recent FDA approvals, withdrawals, and therapeutic uses provide impeccably accurate and current content to ensure safe drug therapy.
  • Updated and streamlined coverage of nursing care with a stronger focus on the need-to-know material helps students focus on the most current, need-to-know content.
