One of the many important roles nurses play is to handle and administer drugs of all schedules to patients under their care and to monitor their response to the drugs. The assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation by the nurse ensures that patients benefit optimally from the relevant drug therapy. This requires sound knowledge of drugs, their actions, therapeutic uses, adverse effects and contra-indications, to provide safe patient care. This third edition of Pharmacology for Nurses and Other Health Workers provides nurses and midwives with the necessary knowledge, skills and competency to handle and administer drugs safely in the healthcare setting.
