Pharmacology for Nurses: A Pathophysiologic Approach (5th Edition)


By (author): Michael Patrick Adams, Norman Holland, Carol Urban

For pharmacology courses in nursing programs

Help students think like nurses and understand how pharmacology relates to patient care
When drugs are learned in isolation from their associated diseases, students have difficulty connecting pharmacotherapy, pathophysiology, and nursing care. Pharmacology for Nurses: A PathophysiologiApproach, Fifth Edition, helps students master pharmacology by tightly linking it to therapeutic goals and patient wellness. Organized by body systems and diseases, it places drugs in context with how they are used therapeutically. Students can then easily locate relevant anatomy, physiology, pathology, and pharmacology in the same chapter. Nursing Process Application features clearly relate pharmacology to key nursing processes. Features highlighting complementary therapies, community-oriented and evidence-based practices, and lifespan considerations help students make connections to nursing practice. To give readers a clear picture of the holistic nature of pharmacology, the Fifth Edition reflects current pharmacotherapeutics and advances in understanding disease.

Also available with MyNursingLab®
MyNursingLab is an an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to engage students in the Pharmacology course and improve results. Its guided learning path is proven to help students think like a nurse as they move beyond memorization to true understanding through application.

A patient-centered approach to pharmacology

Pharmacology: Connections to Nursing Practice tightly links pharmacology to nursing practice and patient care, recognizing that for nurses, pharmacology is not an abstract academic discipline but rather a critical tool to prevent disease and promote healing and wellness. It offers unsurpassed features designed to illuminate connections between pharmacology and practice, from patient scenarios and practice applications to coverage of lifespan considerations, patient education, alternative therapies, and gender/cultural influences. Learning is simplified through the use of prototype drugs, as well as outstanding full-color illustrations. Organization by body systems (units) and diseases (chapters) places the drugs in context with how they are used therapeutically and connects pharmacology and pathophysiology to nursing care. The Third Edition covers 25 new medications approved by the FDA since the previous edition, a new chapter on Individual Variations in Drug Responses, and updated review questions that better prepare students for exams.

Community and Clinical Pharmacy Services: A step by step approach.


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Ashley W. Ells, Justin Sherman

A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO IMPLEMENTING ADVANCED PHARMACY SERVICES IN COMMUNITY AND CLINIC SETTINGS

Community and Clinical Pharmacy Services teaches pharmacy students and practicing pharmacists how to provide advanced levels of pharmacy services in community and clinic settings designed to help patients achieve specific health goals and treat common disease states. This unique text provides practical–rather than merely ideological–ways for pharmacists to utilize their extensive clinical knowledge and fill a major gap in American health care. It discusses barriers, necessary skills, required knowledge, and issues related to preparation, interventions, patient outcomes, economic aspects, and marketing considerations for therapeutic areas commonly addressed in the outpatient setting.

The beginning of the book delves into the general management skills necessary to provide and implement advanced patient care services, including documentation, patient interviewing, and medication therapy management. Important chapters discuss disease states that would most likely be amenable to development of pharmacy services, including:

  • Asthma
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Osteoporosis
  • Obesity

Also covered are immunizations, anticoagulation, and cardiometabolic services. The disease state chapters include learning aids such as summary points, first-hand accounts from experienced pharmacists who have implemented pharmacy services for that particular condition, a simulated patient case, and multiple-choice questions.

Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Drug Interactions Associated with Antiretroviral Drugs


Clinically-focussed, with easily accessible tables and chapter summaries suitable for clinicians and researchers,  this comprehensive book provides a systematic, critical evaluation of the current literature. An updated clinical decision-making algorithm specifically tailored to the antiretroviral drugs is also provided. The identified interactions are interpreted in the context of known mechanisms derived from clinical, preclinical, and in vitro data. The clinical relevance of the interactions is systematically evaluated and gaps in literature discussed in the context of potential future experiments. In addition to the comprehensive summary of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic drug interactions associated with WHO-recommended antiretroviral drugs on the market today (i.e. nucleotide reverse-transcriptase inhibitors, non-nucleoside reverse-transcriptase inhibitors, integrase inhibitors, and protease inhibitors), this book also provides detailed section summaries on the epidemiology of HIV infection, diagnosis and pharmacotherapy, basic pharmacology of the individual antiretrovirals, pertinent pre-clinical and in vitro molecular pharmacology, and in vitro drug interaction data available in the literature today.
