Pharmacology:Connections to Nursing Practice

Description

For courses in Pharmacology.

 

PHARMACOLOGY: CONNECTIONS TO NURSING PRACTICE, 2/e tightly links pharmacology to nursing practice and patient care, recognizing that for nurses, pharmacology is not an abstract academic discipline but rather a critical tool to prevent disease and promote healing and wellness. It offers unsurpassed features designed to illuminate connections between pharmacology and practice, from patient scenarios and practice applications to coverage of lifespan considerations, patient education, alternative therapies, and gender/cultural influences. Nine additional units illuminate the actions of individual drugs on each body system and disease. Learning is simplified through the use of prototype drugs, as well as outstanding full-color illustrations, complemented by 45 web-based animations. This edition covers 30+ new drugs, and offers updated information about dosages, indications, and adverse effects throughout, including Black Box Warnings.

Hallmark Features

 

Helps students gain unsurpassed insight into the linkages between pharmacology and nursing practice. Includes multiple features intended to illuminate these connections, such as: 

  • Making the Patient Connection features opening each chapter with a quote and a photo of a patient; each is revisited at the end of the chapter, with critical thinking exercises.
  • Treating the Diverse Patient features identifying gender and cultural influences that may modify drug action.
  • Complementary and Alternative Therapy features presenting herbal therapies, dietary supplements, or interventional therapeutic techniques that may be considered as complementary or alternatives to conventional drugs.
  • Evidence-Based Practice features illustrating connections to nursing or pharmacology research, presenting short-term and long-term directions of pharmacotherapeutics, and offering critical thinking questions that challenge students to connect scientific evidence with practice.
  • Patient Safety features presenting brief patient-nurse scenarios that illustrate potential pitfalls that can lead to medication errors. Each scenario ends with a question asking the student to identify what went wrong, what the nurse should do in the situation, what the nurse should question about the order, or what the nurse should do differently in order to prevent medication administration errors.
  • Lifespan Considerations features clearly identifying geriatric and pediatric impacts on pharmacotherapy that may affect nursing care.
  • To the Community features providing important information that patients will need for effective pharmacotherapy after they leave the hospital or clinical setting.
  • Nursing Practice Applications concisely connecting the nursing process to the major drug class(es) in each drug chapter, and incorporating outcomes from the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies of patient-centered care, teamwork and collaboration, patient safety, evidence-based practice, and links to other disciplines (e.g., social support and dietetics).
  • Connection Checkpoints asking students to recall and integrate concepts from previous chapters where they relate to current study. 

Helps students understand drugs in the context of their therapeutic use. Organized by body systems (units) and diseases (chapters), clearly connecting both pharmacology and pathophysiology to nursing care.

 

Simplifies learning through the use of prototypes. Includes especially detailed coverage of the most representative medications in each classification, addressing 190 essential prototype drugs.

 

Provides fast access to crucial information about dosages, potential adverse effects, and safety. Includes easy-to-understand Drug Tables containing average dosages for most medications, as well as lists of the most common and most serious adverse effects for each drug or drug class.

 

Ensures that nurses understand their specific responsibilities in connection with the administration of each prototype drug. Presents bulleted lists of Nursing Responsibilities, including important life span and diversity considerations and patient and family education needs.

 

Provides intuitive visual review of body system anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology. Includes many vivid, colorful, and effective illustrations that promote deeper understanding of body systems and how drugs impact them.

 

Helps students understand the mechanisms of action associated with many drugs. Pharmacotherapy Illustrated features visually present the mechanism of action of over 20 prototype drugs; more than 45 Mechanism of Action animated tutorials on the accompanying Pearson Nursing Student Resources website illuminate drug action at the molecular, tissue, organ, and system levels.

 

Supports highly effective and efficient chapter review. Provides the most comprehensive chapter review of any book of its type, including an Understanding the Chapter section containing Key Concepts summaries, with links to even more concept review on the Pearson Nursing Student Resources website.

 

Gives students the review they need to succeed with pharmacology questions on their NCLEX-RN« exams. Includes NCLEX-RN«-style questions, with answers and rationales provided in an appendix.

 

Helps students participate in evidence-based practice. Based on up-to-date research, supported with detailed references and bibliographies for further student exploration.
