Master the pharmacologic principles and drug information you need to safely and effectively prescribe drugs for primary care! Edmunds' Pharmacology for the Primary Care Provider, 5th Edition is written for Nurse Practitioners, other Advanced Practice Nursing prescribers, and Physician Assistants. Unlike other pharmacotherapeutics textbooks, it focuses on the drugs most commonly used in primary care settings. A new chapter format and body-system approach make learning easier, and standardized clinical guidelines ensure best practices in pharmacotherapeutics. Updated and impeccably accurate drug content includes the latest drug classes, specific drugs, and therapeutic uses in primary care. Continuing to emphasize health promotion strategies, this new edition includes new chapters on pharmacogenetics, drugs for ADHD, nutritional supplements, and more.

    • Focus on key drugs highlights the most commonly prescribed and most representative drugs of each major drug class — with particular emphasis on the top 100 prescribed drugs.
    • Emphasis on patient teaching helps you communicate with patients and family caregivers to promote adherence to the drug regimen.

    • NEW and UNIQUE! Chapter format begins with an overview of anatomy, physiology, and disease processes — as opposed to drug classes or drug types — and then follows the World Health Organization’s Process for Rational Prescribing, using a six-step approach to drug selection and discussing first-, second-, and third-line treatments for each specific problem.
    • NEW! Practical learning aids include:
    • Black Box Warning boxes that draw attention to critical drug safety precautions.
    • Clinical Guidelines: Bookmark This features that identify websites where updated clinical guidelines can be found.
