The book is laid out in a user friendly manner, using simple language to explain concepts so is suitable for students that want to gain a basic understanding of medications.
Not only does this book deal with numberous medications and their side affects but also covers the anatomy and physiology of systems. For example it looks indepth at the renal system covering the a and p of the kidneys, including their functions and looking in detail at renal failure.Within these sections are areas focusing on medications which would be used to treat particular illnesses.
The book also looks at policies and procedures when administering medication, controlled drugs, and nurse prescribers, allowing students to gain a better understanding of how to administer medication and will be very useful when qualified, when putting theory into practice.
The book uses a good range of diagrams, which are extremely helpful when covering the anatomy and physiology. The book is easy to navigate, allowing you to dip in and find what you are looking for. This I woud recommend to student nurses that want a good 'drugs' book as it covers everything you need to know.
It offers a comprehsive guide to administration and managment of medication with useful images and summary boxes that are written in an easy to understand way
Self assesment questions throughout the book and useful and again realistic to nursing practice and encourage deeper thought and learning.
as a third year student currently studying complex health i have found it invaluable to refer to and use as a point of reference for essays.
i would reccomend this book to any student nurse and wish i had had it before the third year.
