Awarded second place in the 2017 AJN Book of the Year Awards in the Adult Primary Care category and a 2019 PROSE Award finalist. Equip your advanced practice students with Lehne's time-tested content and approach, now re-engineered for advanced practice prescribers. Lehne's Pharmacotherapeutics for Advanced Practice Providers is built on the same solid foundation of clearly explained, up-to-date, and clinically current content as the undergraduate-level Lehne’s Pharmacology for Nursing Care, yet focuses on the principles and drug content needed by primary and acute care nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and clinical nurse specialists. Three introductory chapters provide foundational content for new prescribers in the areas of prescriptive authority, rational drug selection, prescription writing, and promoting positive outcomes of drug therapy. Core chapter content centers on the drugs that advanced practitioner prescribers will see most commonly in clinical practice. The book places a sharp focus on pharmacotherapeutic decision-making. It also includes prescriber-focused pedagogical aids such as Black Box Warnings. Rosenthal and Burchum rely on their unique advanced practice perspectives as acute care and primary care nurse practitioners to deliver an approachable text that covers all the pharmacology information your students need to become safe, effective prescribers.

    • Introductory chapters tailored to the specific needs of advanced practice prescribers cover topics such as prescriptive authority, rational drug selection and prescription writing, and promoting positive outcomes of drug therapy.
    • Carefully focused pharmacotherapeutic content reflects the drugs most commonly seen and used by advanced practice prescribers, with emphasis not on the first drug discovered or developed in each class but on the agents most often used today. Primary care drugs are addressed first in each chapter as appropriate, followed by and acute care drugs.
    • UNIQUE! Prescriber-focused pedagogical aids further reinforce the most important information for advanced practice prescribers. Black Box Warnings alert you to special warnings and precautions related to particular drugs.
    • Integrated coverage of Canadian trade names appears throughout the text and is highlighted with a familiar maple-leaf icon.
    • Integrated coverage of interprofessional collaboration addresses the growing global interest in interprofessional collaboration and incorporates opportunities for interprofessional collaborative practice throughout.
