Focus on Nursing Pharmacology + Lippincotts Photo Atlas of Medication Administration + Study Guide. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Amy Karch has found that students learn best when concepts are built upon each other, growing from simple to complex, building on a foundation of understanding.
Organized by body systems, this heavily illustrated book organizes essential nursing pharmacology information into focused, easy-to-learn steps. Building key concepts upon each other, the text gives students a solid foundation of understanding. Easy to understand drug prototype boxes are integrated as well as integrated content summaries. The fifth edition includes a completely revamped art program with more images depicting drug actions than any of the book's competitors. The fifth edition also underwent major reorganization to streamline the very functional "Focus on" theme for drug use across the lifespan, cultural and gender considerations, evidence-based practice, patient teaching, herbal and alternative therapies and dosage calculations; a new box, "Focus on Safe Medication Administration;" and totally revamped "Drugs in Focus" table for each classification of drugs. Focused content and focused features equal a focused student.
In addition, we've expanded and updated content on psychiatric agents (includes new indications, cautions and precautions), and significantly expanded information on AIDS and therapeutic management. Drug discussions include therapeutic actions and indications, pharmacokinetics, contraindications and cautions and adverse effects. Detailed rationales are presented throughout. Each chapter opens with Learning Objectives and a Glossary of Key Terms, and ends with NCLEX-style questions, and contains a case study-based critical thinking exercise that sets up a situation, shows critical thinking, and then presents a discussion and case-based nursing care guide. Features like this make the book an essential teaching tool.
Review: School of Health Sciences, Swansea University, Sue Jordan, Senior lecturer, -- "This book is one of the few to detail nursing care related to medication administration". Queen's University Belfast, Student Nurse -- "As part of my course focuses on pharmacology I was delighted when this book was given to me and I wasn't disappointed as the book dealt with quite a difficult and varied subject in a clear and precise manner."
