Overview

Pharmacology for Nurses: A Pathophysiologic Approach links pharmacology to therapeutic goals, to simplify concepts and add relevance. Instead of surveying drug interventions in isolation, the authors examine them in the context of body systems (via units) and diseases (via chapters). They also weigh the impact of alternative therapies, research findings, and cultural and lifespan factors on clinical decisions.

The 7th Edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect considerable changes in pharmacology, including 120 new drugs, since the last edition. New features reflect changes in pharmacotherapeutics and advances in understanding disease. A new Nursing Clinical Judgment feature gives you a concise, one-column summary of best practices for patient assessment, patient-centered care and evaluation of outcomes.
