Accurately and safely prescribing drugs for common diseases and disorders is vital for advanced practice nurses. That's what makes Pharmacotherapeutics for Advanced Nursing Practice by Tammie Lee Demler and Jacqueline Rhoads so timely. Reflecting the latest research on how each drug works in the body, it provides guidance on drug selection, considerations for special populations, therapeutic drug monitoring, adverse reactions, drug-to-drug interactions, and processes for adding or changing drug therapy.
Written from both a nursing and pharmacy perspective, the text captures real-life experience to provide an inclusive, reliable resource for both nursing students and practicing providers. Organized by drug classification and by the body systems the drug therapy targets, it also offers quick reference tables to provide critical information at a glance. Color symbols show pharmacokinetic considerations of each drug within its class.
