Summary

This concise, user-friendly text/study guide/CD-ROM package is designed to present students with a streamlined view of contemporary nursing pharmacology. Ideal when used as a companion to a handbook of current drug information, the text reviews previously-learned knowledge of physiology and pathophysiology and integrates it with the fundamentals of pharmacology to help readers understand and retain need-to-know information about each group of drugs discussed. A combination of line art, graphics, and comparative tables makes complex concepts easy to visualize and understand. A Study Guide is included at the back of the text. The CD-ROM, containing more than 700 drug monographs, is a reliable source for specific drug detail, as well as hyperlinks to relevant websites.
