Description


This book was written in response to legislation enabling nurses to prescribe and thus expand their role within the NHS. It is divided into 9 chapters examining in detail each of the groups of products described in the Nurse Prescribing Formulary (NPF). The authors have adopted a standardised chapter format throughout, beginning with a sound understanding of the basic pharmacology of each preparation, and building on this to incorporate relevant anatomical and physiological information, an examination of the modes of action of the drugs covered, as well as their doses, common side effects, and contraindications. Important issues related to patient assessment, evaluation and education are also highlighted. There is also an important opening chapter on the legal and professional aspects of nurse prescribing.
