Emphasizing safe and effective drug administration, Introduction to Clinical Pharmacology, 8th 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, so you can understand why drugs are given, as well as when they should and should not be given. Safety is also prioritized with an interactive review of math and drug dosage calculation on the Evolve companion website. Written by Dr. Marilyn Edmunds, a nationally known journal editor and nurse practitioner, Introduction to Clinical Pharmacology highlights ‘must-know’ drugs — the ones seen most often in clinical practice.

    • A focus on understanding drug classes rather than memorizing individual drugs helps you understand the actions and uses of drug classes and provides a framework for safe, effective practice as new drugs are introduced and as existing drugs are withdrawn from the market.
    • Coverage of math review and medication administration includes three chapters on math review and drug dosage calculation, to promote safe drug administration.
    • Unique! 30 must-know drugs -- those most commonly prescribed -- are highlighted with icons and listed inside the cover for quick reference.
    • Readability and clarity is attained through the use of a simplified vocabulary and shorter sentencesmake the content easier than ever to learn.
    • Vivid, full-color design includes 200 drawings and photographs.
    • Do Not Confuse drug list is is located on the inside cover for quick reference, helping you avoid drug errors with common look-alike or sound-alike drug names.
    • Consistent chapter format covers each drug class with Action, Uses, Adverse Reactions, Drug and Food Interactions, and Nursing Implications and Patient Teaching sections.
    • Application of the nursing process to each drug class includes Assessment, Diagnosis, Planning, Implementation, Evaluation, and Patient and Family Teaching.

    • Key content is highlighted, as in all of Elsevier's LPN Threads textbooks, with features such as Clinical Goldmines, Clinical Pitfalls, Memory Joggers, Lifespan Considerations, and Complementary and Alternative Therapies boxes.
    • Case studies in all drug chapters offer practice in applying information to realistic clinical situations and help you prepare for the NCLEX-PN Examination.
    • Drug Calculation Review questions reinforce your drug calculation and math skills in the context of clinical practice.
    • Critical thinking questions at the end of each chapter promote higher-level thinking skills while reinforcing key concepts.

    • Canadian drug icons identify trade-name drugs available only in Canada.

    • Glossary includes all of the book's key terms plus additional terminology that will be helpful in clinical practice, with audio pronunciations on the Evolve companion website.
    • NEW! Get Ready for the NCLEX¨ Examination! section at the end of each chapter integrates new Review Questions for the NCLEX Examination with the popular Drug Calculation Review, and revises Key Points, Case Studies, and Critical Thinking Questions.
    • NEW! Additional illustrations in the book and animations on the Evolve companion website help to clarify difficult concepts.
    • Updated drug information emphasizes medication safety and evidence-based practice.
