For courses in Dosage Calculation and use across the Nursing curriculum.
Basic dosage calculation and administration for nurses
Dosage Calculations: A Multi-Method Approach helps students develop the dosage calculation skills they need to administer medications safely and accurately in clinical settings. Using plain language, problem examples, and practice opportunities, the text aims to reduce the anxiety many nursing students express about math. It covers three dosage calculation methods–dimensional analysis, ratio and proportion, and formula. Illustrated examples walk students through dosage problems step by step, using all three methods and often comparing approaches side by side. The content progresses from simple math topics to complex applications for calculating and administering a range of medications.
The updated 2nd edition delivers the most up-to-date standards for dosage calculation. It draws on safety recommendations of the Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals, the Institute for Safe Medical Practice, and the CDC’s One and Only Campaign.
