Medical errors are the second most common cause of patient safety incidents and junior doctors are associated with more than half of all errors - however recent curriculum changes have seen increased emphasis on pharmacological knowledge and prescribing practices. This book addresses both the fundamental problems of teaching clinical pharmacology and therapeutics as well as reducing prescribing errors. Essential Notes on Prescribing for Finals and Junior Doctors is a practical, on-the-ward handbook that provides a rapid review of key medications prescribed commonly by junior doctors, including oxygen, pain-relief, insulin, and blood-thinning agents. Lists and tables aid revision and quick reference and more than 25 'gold standard' prescription charts are presented covering acute medical and surgical scenarios for OSCE-style examinations. This easy-to-read, high-yield revision guide for medical students approaching finals gives vital tips and highlights common prescribing errors and gives junior doctors the knowledge and confidence to prescribe safely and appropriately.
