Pharmacology Clear and Simple: A Guide to Drug Classifications and Dosage Calculations PDF Download
In my 32 years as a nurse, I have been involved with direct patient care as well as taught a variety of students in nursing, medical assisting, surgical technology, and respiratory therapy. I have also taught
those who may not deliver direct patient care, such as students of psychology and clinical lab science.
There is always one constant challenge: to provide students with enough pharmacology knowledge so that they feel confident as they embark on their health profession careers but not so much that
they are overwhelmed. For those students who will administer medication, pharmacology is critical; for others, it is a subject that will aid their understanding of the patient care relationship, although
they may not be directly involved with the patient.
This edition of the book has been expanded in response to the requests of our reviewers. I’ve tried to build on the solid foundation of the second edition and to expand the coverage of drugs,keeping in mind always the suggestions we received from pharmacology faculty from around the nation. I hope you will be pleased with the results.
My goal for the third edition of this book is to continue to bring the most current information to pharmacology topics as well as continue to provide elemental concepts that will enable students understand how medications work and how they are administered. These concepts include the health professionals’ role in the process.
