Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0199575819, Paperback)

Prescribing is a relatively recent extension of the nursing role, and there are few resources to support the prescriber through this complex and expanding initiative. The Oxford Handbook of Prescribing for Nurses and Allied Health Professionals, second edition gives concise, practical and expert advice on all aspects of non-medical prescribing.

Giving a complete picture of the role of the prescriber, the handbook provides evidence-based advice for all nurse and non-medical prescribers from novice and student level through to the established prescriber; for all prescribing courses; and following all the competency areas. Helping you achieve the best possible results for your patients, the authors offer a wealth of recommendations, guidance and information from their years of experience as practitioners and teachers. Whatever situation you are in, the Oxford Handbook of Prescribing for Nurses and Allied Health Professionals will give you the information you need. It contains the practical principles required to enable you to practice safely, effectively and cost-consciously. Information included ranges from basic pharmacology, to the legal aspects and processes of prescribing practice, and prescribing for specific conditions and special groups, such as the older person and the very young. This new edition has been fully revised to include new legislation and changes to prescribing standards. Chapters on complementary and alternative medicine, and evidence-based practice have been expanded, and guidelines regarding prescribing for cosmetic effect have also been included.

So you can find the information you need without delay, the book is clearly laid out with one topic per page, and written in an easily readable note-based style. All this is available at your fingertips, in an accessible and pocket-sized handbook. Written by practising nurses and checked by subject experts and pharmacologists, the Oxford Handbook of Prescribing for Nurses and Allied Health Professionals is a unique and invaluable companion to those undertaking prescribing training and novice prescribers, as well as qualified nurse prescribers, extended nurse prescribers, supplementary nurse prescribers, and other legally designated health professional prescribers including physiotherapists, radiographers, podiatrists, optometrists and pharmacists.
