This new edition of the popular Pharmacology case studies for nurse prescribers has been thoroughly revised in the light of the latest research and guidance from NICE, the British National Formulary (BNF), the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, the Nursing and Midwifery Council and the Royal College of Nursing. While the first edition was aimed at students undertaking the non-medical prescribing modules, this updated text has broadened its scope and is relevant to all trainee and qualified nurse prescribers.

There are new and additional chapters on pregnancy and breastfeeding, sexual health and contraception, and prescribing for frailty syndrome in the elderly. The latest developments in pharmacology (such as the emergence of biosimilar drugs) are included in the text; and all the chapters from the first edition have been revised and updated by expert healthcare practitioners.

Meanwhile, the practical approach and helpful features that made the first edition so popular remain unchanged. The authors offer a basic introduction to pharmacological concepts, embedded in specific conditions, through case studies and self-assessment questions. By utilising a case study approach, they enable the reader to link pharmacological concepts with clinical practice.
Reading this book, and carrying out the numerous self-assessment activities, will give the reader an appreciation of the value of having a sound pharmacological knowledge base in order to deliver safe practice, effective prescribing and improved patient care.
