The Top 100 Drugs: Clinical Pharmacology and Practical Prescribing, 1e (Paperback)

By (author): Andrew Hitchings BSc(Hons) MBBS MRCP FHEA, Dagan Lonsdale BSc(Hons) MBBS MRCP FHEA, Daniel Burrage BSc(Hons) MBBS MRCP FHEA, Emma Baker PhD FRCP

Prescribing for the first time is a nerve-wracking experience. Of all the tasks performed by new doctors, it is probably the one with greatest direct impact on the wellbeing of patients. Safe and effective practice rests on a good understanding of both clinical pharmacology and practical prescribing. Acquiring this is not easy, particularly when faced with reams of information about hundreds of unfamiliar drugs, often presented in a way that appears detached from clinical reality.

This book is your starting point. It is a direct response to requests from students for a compendium of the 100 most important drugs in the NHS. Key information about the clinical pharmacology and practical prescribing of each drug is presented side-by-side, allowing you to direct your attention as appropriate for your stage of training. Drugs can be accessed alphabetically when you need quick information on the wards and by organ system or clinical indication when you are at your desk.

Research led by Professor Emma Baker has identified the ‘top 100 drugs’ by their importance and prescribing frequency. She has shown that the list changes little over time, making it a stable resource upon which to base learning.

"A great practical resource for those new to prescribing the text is aimed at those new to independent prescribing, and for that group I would consider The Top 100 Drugs to be an excellent publication" Reviewed by: Emma Watts on behalf of (journal) Pulse Date: April 2015

  • The top 100 drugs and the five most important intravenous fluids are presented using a clear, consistent layout across double-page spreads.

While palliative care has adopted a holistic approach to treatment, medication driven symptom management ostensibly forms the critical aspect of care. Pharmacological therapy can be extremely complex because these patients often have co-existing medical conditions in addition to symptoms caused by their terminal disease. The resulting polypharmacy can be daunting for professionals and can negatively impact on effectiveness of care.

The practitioner requires a simple, easy to navigate reference source that provides succinct and pertinent drug information. This detailed yet concise handbook will appeal to a variety of healthcare professionals involved in the provision of palliative care and medicines information. It begins with an overview of pharmacology and prescribing advice then contains over 100 entries of palliative care drugs, in an easy to use A-Z format.
