Provides nursing students with an opportunity to apply pharmacology concepts to real-world situations - written by a distinguished nursing professional with over 25 years of experience
The text features 50 case studies based on real-life clinical situations that challenge students to think critically and develop effective problem-solving skills. Case studies present patients’ medication history, enabling students to learn about the disease process from the point of medication use – an approach used in actual clinical practice.
Other features include a review of key terms, home and intensive care scenarios, and a list of variables that must be considered in order to conduct an appropriate case analysis. Also present are a series of questions that will help guide students in developing effective ways to handle the scenario.
