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.

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.

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.
