Pearson Nurse’s Drug Guide 2015 provides all the information you need for safe, effective drug administration in any setting. This valuable title lists all drugs alphabetically with a comprehensive index that identifies generic, trade, combination and prototype drugs. A unique glossary provides valuable information regarding common assessment findings related to therapeutic effectiveness or ineffectiveness of specific drugs.
This popular guide has been transformed into an easy-to-use handheld application, allowing quick access to valuable information on your mobile device. Each drug monograph provides the necessary information for safe and effective drug administration. The authors recognize that the decision-making process related to drug administration is cyclical, meaning assessments are made both prior to and after drug administration. Thus, nursing diagnoses and interventions may change as a result of an achieved therapeutic effect, therapeutic failure, manifestation of an adverse effect, or demonstration of a learning need. The authors believe that the users of this drug reference will find that the clear and logical design of the drug monographs facilitates decision making and supports the nursing process.
