Pharmacology Online for Pharmacology and the Nursing Process, 7th Edition

By

Corresponding to Lilley's Pharmacology and the Nursing Process, 7th Edition, Pharmacology Online features a collection of self-paced learning modules that will enhance your understanding of pharmacology. Hands-on practice makes it easier to learn everything from basic principles to dosage calculation and more — all within context of the nursing process and prioritization. Self-study modules, true-to-life interactive case studies, videos, animations, interactive activities, care planning activities, and NCLEX® Exam–style quizzes help you understand how drugs work and how to administer them safely in the clinical setting.

    • Self-study modules provide a thorough introduction to the basic principles of pharmacology, drug calculations, and safe drug administration.
    • Case studies include quizzes that show the consequences of both correct and incorrect choices and include rationales for incorrect choices.
    • Interactive learning activities such as flash cards provide a review of the drug content you need to know, in a fun, game-like way.
    • Roadside Assistance video clips use humor and analogy to bring key pharmacology content to life.
    • Animations bring difficult concepts to life.
    • Practice quizzes for the NCLEX® Examination provide questions to prepare you for the expanded pharmacology content of today's NCLEX Examination.
    • Care planning activities present brief case studies along with a care plan template for completion.
    • An audio glossary presents definitions and audio pronunciations for more than 1,400 terms and drug names.
    • A drug handbook serves as a quick, convenient reference within the course.
    • New organization to match the textbook helps emphasize the relevance of each Self-Study Module, video, animation, and more to understanding and learning key concepts from the text.

    • Five brand-new, drug-specific Self-Study Modules go beyond the basic principles of pharmacology to focus on important drug content areas:

      • Pain

      • Antihypertensives

      • Medications for Asthma

      • Medications for Peptic Ulcer Disease with H. pylori
      • Antilipemic Drugs
