3.0 out of 5 stars A great companion for any medical students on clinical placement
When as a medical student you first go out on the ward it can be quite daunting when you encounter all the different drugs that patients are on for the first time. Some of them you will know about from your reading during the pre-clinical stage of your degree, others you may never have heard of before.

If you ask about the different drugs that patients are on...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for the student, 6 Mar 2014
This review is from: Oxford Handbook of Practical Drug Therapy (Oxford Medical Handbooks) (Paperback)
after reading the previous comment about the book I couldn't understand the average rating?

I'm a pharmacy technician and learning all of the drugs in practice is difficult I've used a few of the Oxford handbooks from the library during my course. They are so well written and easy to understand. The practical drug therapy book is the one out of them all which gives you the most wide ranging information about drug therapies in a practical concise way.... what more could you want... you can't check google all the time, sometimes a pocket companion comes in handy.

Useful, not exactly what expected but it's helpful with certain drugs. As I am a student midwife I need more detail than it holds but perfect for a light description

3.0 out of 5 stars A great companion for any medical students on clinical placement, 4 Mar 2013
This review is from: Oxford Handbook of Practical Drug Therapy (Oxford Medical Handbooks) (Paperback)
When as a medical student you first go out on the ward it can be quite daunting when you encounter all the different drugs that patients are on for the first time. Some of them you will know about from your reading during the pre-clinical stage of your degree, others you may never have heard of before.

If you ask about the different drugs that patients are on you will often be referred to the British National Formulary to find out more about the drug. The problem for a student though is that this is not a textbook and as such it can be hard to find the types of detail that you need in order to be able to understand more about this drug.

If you find yourself facing this problem then might I advise you to look no further than this Oxford Handbook. This book covers all of the common drugs that you are likely to encounter whilst on your clinical attachment. Each drug includes a link through to the relevant section of the BNF making it easy to use alongside it. As each drug/group is introduced you are given a brief introduction to how the drug works and examples of specific drugs in that group. After this you are then given the indications of when this drug/group can be used, common treatment protocols, common side effects, any monitoring that needs to be done, any interactions and any advice that you should give to the patient plus much more. On top of all this there are boxes throughout the book that help you to approach common exam topics on these drugs so that you have an idea how to answer them etc.

In summary if you are looking for a book that will help you to understand the drugs that you encounter whilst on clinical rotations as a medical student then highly consider getting this book from the library or purchasing yourself a copy.
