Description

Drug therapy is an increasingly important element in the treatment of patients, and understanding how a drug works is essential for all nurses. Illustrated Pharmacology for Nurses is a fully comprehensive and beautifully illustrated textbook covering both the basic principles and the clinical aspects of pharmacology.

The book provides clear and simple explanations of the way drugs act, looking at their effects and their use in a range of situations. Combining the basic and clinical aspects of pharmacology in one concise volume, it is an invaluable learning tool for nursing, biomedical and clinical science students.
