Nurses working within the expanded role of prescriber will frequently be faced with prescribing decisions. This text provides easily accessible information upon which to base these decisions, ensuring safe and effective prescribing practices. Each chapter examines the preparations available to nurses in the extended formulary and their effects on the human body. Information including product dosage, contraindications, side effects, drug interactions, and specific nursing points is presented in detail. This text provides key background information from the relevant life sciences, as it applies to modern clinical practice. The authors have brought together widely available information in the form of a single, easy to use, practice-based text, which, in conjunction with the BNF, Drug Tariff and manufacturers' product information sheets, provides an essential guide to nurse prescribing.
