A useful and practical accompaniment for those studying nurse prescribing, this textbook is also a valuable resource for practitioners qualified in this extended role and those who prescribe and administer medications daily.

The clearly written text is easy to follow and understand, and there are supporting illustrations and tables where appropriate. The book content includes information on the concepts of pharmacology in relation to a range of conditions, including angina, diabetes, mental health, and gastrointestinal and neurological conditions.

The chapters that cover how the body affects drugs, how drugs affect the body, and adverse reactions and interactions provide extremely interesting reading.

Each chapter has case studies and self-assessment questions that cleverly link the theory of pharmacology to clinical practice, and a comprehensive glossary has a long list of abbreviations to support the learning of technical terms. It is fully referenced, and links to further sources of learning are provided.

The book is a recommended text that fully supports the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s standards for nurse prescribers. It also highlights the importance of pharmacology in today’s increasingly complex healthcare system.

The book also helps to ensure that safe and effective practice is followed throughout the medication process.
