Providing a framework for safe and effective drug administration, Introduction to Clinical Pharmacology, 7th Edition helps you understand the principles of pharmacology and avoid making medication errors. It promotes safety by showing how drugs and drug classes work, rather than asking you to simply memorize information about individual drugs. Safety is also emphasized with a section dedicated to math review and drug dosage calculation. This edition includes updated drug information, new review questions for the NCLEX examination, and a succinct, evidence-based approach to pharmacology. Written by nationally known nurse practitioner Marilyn Edmunds, Introduction to Clinical Pharmacology highlights "must-know" drugs -- the ones seen most often in clinical practice.
