Product Description

Pharmacology in Nursing, Australian and New Zealand edition, focuses on the use of drugs as medications within the healthcare environment in Australia and New Zealand. This text is a resource for nurses and health professionals in their understanding of drugs and their actions, especially with regard to the responsibilities of nurses in relation to medication administration and patient management.

The text introduces medications and medication therapies, and the principles and methods of medication administration, with an emphasis on the implications for nursing care. Specific medication therapy considerations for paediatric and aged-care clients are presented in separate chapters to highlight the special concerns for these groups.

The text takes a body systems approach, focussing on the pharmacology of the medications that act on the various body systems and their disorders.
