Dr Andy PowellPhysiology Lead for NursingBirmingham City UniversityThe outlay of the chapters is easily navigated and the level of the knowledge that the book starts at is at a basic level enough for any student nurse from year 1-3 to start with and builds in complexity. The drug calculation tests are excellent and the clinical tips make things so much easier to understand and digest.

Margaret Dilger, Lecturer, University of Salford, UK This user-friendly guide follows on from the bestselling book Essentials of Pharmacology for Nurses, and is written for pre-registration nursing students looking for an accessible guide to drug groups that goes beyond the essentials. It follows a clear pathway for learning: it is easy to read, is clearly written and shows the importance of aspects of pharmacology within the work of a nurse. provides excellent case studies that [make the subject] come alive by engaging with and applying the theory to realistic patient scenarios along with the very practical 'clinical tips'.

He is co-author of Further Essentials of Pharmacology for Nurses (2012) and contributor and editor of Medicines Management for Nurses: Case Book (2013) . It uses uncomplicated language and case studies and questions that provide students with concrete examples, relating to real life situations, upon which they can develop their pharmacological knowledge and understanding. It's a practical guide to drugs used in nursing, telling you drug types, effects on the body and side effects the client might encounter. Overall, this book is an excellent resource for healthcare students that will support their learning throughout their training and beyond. It is perfect for any pre-registration student to establish a sound base of knowledge in pharmaco-dynamics, the effect of drugs on the body, as well as pharmaco-kinetics, how drugs are absorbed, metabolised and excreted.

The 10 MCQ’s at the end of a chapter are a very useful method of chapter consolidation and the case studies further reinforce learning. The book includes lots of features that are useful for exam revision - including tips, calculations, multiple choice questions and learning points. Karen Ford, Programme leader for Non-Medical Prescribing, De Montfort University, UK This book is easy to read with clear explanations throughout and suitable for all branches of nurse education. It is clearly laid out with a Key Learning Points section at the end of each chapter, as well as quizzes to aid your learning.Additional case scenarios have been added spanning all areas of practice and include adult, elderly care, child, mental health and learning disability applications.

Although aimed at undergraduate nurses, I feel that this is a good base to build on pharmacology knowledge, not only for undergraduate nurses but also trained nurses. Noted for its clear layout and jargon-free language, this updated edition introduces pharmacology in a friendly, informative way. Paul Barber is Senior Lecturer at the University of Chester, UK and a registered adult and mental health nurse possessing over 35 years experience.

The book also emphasises the application of the principles of pharmacology to all areas of practice and includes; drug action, drug interactions, side effects and adverse reactions. Barber and Robertson build on your existing knowledge of anatomy and physiology to help give a holistic understanding of body systems.
