Review quote

"AHFS Drug Information 2014""Various Authors" The Pharmaceutical Journal, 2014, Volume293, Page 20 [REVIEWER'S EXPERT OPINION] Laurence A. Goldberg This book sets out to provide an evidence-based foundation for safe and effective drug therapy. With the publication of the current edition, the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) has continued to build on this foundation by providing a resource that focuses on the essential evidence-based information that will allow pharmacists, physicians, nurses and other healthcare providers to access quickly, in a straight-forward manner, the specific guidance needed to prescribe and monitor drug therapy safely and effectively. This book is a collection of drug monographs on almost every single drug entity available in the US. Drug monographs are arranged by the AHFS Pharmacologic-Therapeutic Classification. Each easy-to-use monograph offers access to knowledge that is critical at the point of care. It contains a concise overview of the drug's uses (both labelled and off-label) and an easily navigated list of doses specific to each use, age group, route of administration and special population (eg, patients with hepatic or renal impairment). Important cautionary information follows a structured outline with numerous subdivisions of information to help the reader in locating specific contraindications, warnings, sensitivity alerts, safety in pregnancy and in breastfeeding women, drug interactions, etc. Subscribers to the print version of this book will have free access to ASHP's companion website. This text is soft backed with flimsy pages that are likely to become easily damaged with constant use. It is, however, an easy-to-use and valuable reference source. One important attribute is that it is the only remaining official drug compendium published in the US by a non-commercial professional and scientific society. --Laurence A.
