"The New Prescriber is a comprehensive, accessible textbook that provides essential coverage of the three core components for prescribing: the client/patient, the evidence, and the pharmacology. Divided into three sections, this book first looks at the consultation with the patient, and outlines legal, professional and ethical frameworks which guide medical and non medical prescribing. The second is devoted to evidence based practice highlighting key skills essential to all clinicians. This section encourages the reader to identify why evidence based practice should underpin prescribing decisions. The third and final section is concerned with Pharmacology. Here the reader is introduced to basic concepts of pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics, adverse drug reactions and variability of response. These concepts are important as the reader progresses to the major body systems and drugs used to treat infection. An invaluable text for all nurses, health and medical students taking courses in prescribing and pharmacologyPulls together all key elements of prescribing using an integrated approach. 'Stop and think' boxes and 'practice applications' activities provided throughout, enabling the reader to link theory to practiceKey terms and glossary provided"--Provided by publisher.
