Summary

Medicines Management for Nursing Practice: Pharmacology, Patient Safety, and Procedures is a friendly guide designed to equip pre-registration and newly qualified nurses with the medicines management knowledge and skills to provide safe patient-centred care.

Balancing theory with practical advice, this accessible text covers basic pharmacology, drug calculations, key legislation and standards, and patient safety. Drawing from the most up-to-date sources of evidence and advice, including NMC and BNF guidelines, Medicines Management for Nursing Practice prepares nurses to promote their patients' safety, concordance, understanding of medicines, and wellbeing.

This book takes a lively and straightforward approach to a vital set of nursing skills. Learning features such as reflection points, exercises, and further reading help readers to develop and consolidate their knowledge. Chapters on pharmacology and drug calculations take a step-by-step approach and are supported by diagrams and examples to aid understanding. Case studies relate guidelines and theories to the common practical scenarios that nurses encounter on a day-to-day basis.
