Product Description

From the Back Cover

This new edition of Introducing Pharmacology remains an accessible and relevant introduction for nursing and healthcare students who are new to pharmacology, as well as anyone looking to refresh their knowledge of the subject. Clear, understandable and engaging, the text balances accessibility with depth.

 

Includes:

  • Concise explanations of how drugs work in the human body.
  • Explains the underlying physiology and pathophysiology necessary for an understanding of the action of drugs.
  • All of the common drug groups that practitioners are likely to encounter in clinical practice.

New to this edition:

  • Additional chapter on cancer and anti-cancer drugs.
  • New sections, including general anaesthetics, hay-fever and prescribing for special groups such as children, pregnant women and the elderly.
  • Updated to include the latest UK prescribing guidelines.
  • New case-studies, relating pharmacological theory to clinical practice.
  • Inclusion of a new glossary of key terms and definitions.

Roger McFadden is a Senior Lecturer in Pharmacology in the Faculty of Health at Birmingham City University. He has spent many years teaching pharmacology to nursing students and helped develop BCU’s very successful Non-medical Prescribing course that has trained hundreds of nurses to become independent prescribers.

 

A well-structured and highly personable introduction to the principles of pharmacology.   This book will make a great companion to learners embarking on a nursing career or those who need to revisit the key concepts.

 

Reuben Pearce, University of West London 

 

 

Looking for a no-nonsense introduction to pharmacology, then this is the book for you.
