Trust Lehne’s to make pharmacology completely approachable! Known for its clear explanations of drug prototypes and how they work, Lehne's Pharmacology for Nursing Care, 11th Edition provides a solid understanding of key drugs and their implications for nursing care. A perennial favorite of students and instructors, this text simplifies complex pharmacology concepts, using large and small print to distinguish need-to-know drug content from the material that’s merely nice to know. It also includes in-depth coverage of physiology, pathophysiology and drug therapy. With this text, your students will understand and apply pharmacology principles as opposed to simply memorizing drug facts.

    • Clear, engaging writing style simplifies complex concepts, making difficult pharmacology content not only understandable but actually enjoyable.
    • Prototype Drugs approach focuses on representative drugs that characterize all members of a given drug group, so that you can apply your understanding to related drugs currently on the market as well as drugs that will be released in the future.
    • Nursing implications of drug therapy are integrated throughout the text to reinforce the integral relationship between drug therapy and nursing care, and also summarized in Summary of Major Nursing Implications sections at the end of chapters.
    • Special Interest Topic boxes examine the everyday impact of pharmacology with vignettes including Medication Overuse Headache: Too Much of a Good Thing and Antibiotics in Animal Feed: Dying for a Hamburger and Chicken Nuggets.
    • Large print highlights essential, need-to-know information, and small print indicates nice-to-know information.
    • Safety Alerts call out important safety concerns related to contraindications, adverse effects, and more.
    • Patient-Centered Care Across the Life Span tables highlight safe and appropriate care for patients throughout their lives, from infancy to older adulthood.
    • Concise drug summary tables present key information for individual drugs, including drug class, generic and trade names, dosages, routes, and indications.
    • NEW! Thoroughly updated drug content reflects the latest FDA drug approvals, withdrawals, and therapeutic uses, with revisions to the corresponding nursing content.
    • NEW chapters include Genetic and Genomic Considerations, Muscarinic Antagonists, and Complementary and Alternative Therapy.
