Drugs in Use helps bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge about medicines and its practical application to patients. The sixth edition has been extensively revised and includes seven new chapters on:
sepsis in adults
sepsis in children
The use of self-study questions and answers to accompany each case helps to challenge readers to consider the many options often available when drug-therapy decisions are made.
Whenever appropriate, the patient journey is followed across primary and secondary care, reflecting the fact that many chronic conditions are now managed predominantly in primary care. Optimising medicines to ensure only what is needed and what is acceptable to the patient is prescribed is a significant challenge for newly qualified healthcare professionals. This book demonstrates how to apply the knowledge and skills acquired from pharmacology texts and formal learning.
