Pharmacology for Nurses links a unique approach to teaching pharmacology with Canadian content to deliver an outstanding manual for nursing students. A holistic, pathophysiological approach runs throughout the text, which places drugs in context with their therapeutic use, and organizes them by body systems and diseases. This gives students a clear picture of the importance of pharmacology to disease and ultimately to patient care. Detailed information on the drug classifications used to treat diseases is included.
