"This latest edition of a key textbook on pharmacology for nurses has moved forward from previous editions by becoming stronger by the inclusion of a greater scope of material so maintaining its place as an essential pharmacology book for current and forthcoming nursing students in all clinical practice fields to give them a strong evidence base for their studies and clinical practice. The addition of a chapter on drug calculations is an essential step forward in this edition for all students as this is a key component within all current nursing degree programmes. The continued use of case studies and clinical tips makes learning fun both as an individual but also in small learning groups of students.

The case studies have been carefully selected to provide the diverse care needs of complex disease processes in a person centred way. Each case study is relevant to the role of the Nurse and will provide essential and core information whether nurses are working in either a medical or surgical clinical setting. Government Health Care Directives provide the essential clinical evidence based theory necessary to promote medicine adherence and each chapter provides the relevant pathophysiology which is essential to underpin the safe administration of medication therapies. The role of the nurse in medicine management with respect to patient education and the professional responsibilities of monitoring and evaluating complex medication therapies is presented in each case study. This provides an holistic approach to the care of patients receiving complex medication therapies." Barry Ricketts, Senior Lecturer, Adult Nursing, Oxford Brookes University, UK

"A knowledge and understanding of medicines and medication management is a fundamental aspect of the role of the mental health nurse. The author succeeds in her aim of providing of both a basic knowledge of the subject area, and an understanding of how the principles of psychopharmacology and medicines management are applied to clinical practice and the role of the nurse. The book has an excellent structure, each chapter beginning with clear learning objectives, and ending with a summary of key learning points; multiple choice questions, and a case study, where relevant. The text is written in an accessible sty‚ȧ specific chapters, for example, chapter 5 "Anatomy and physiology of the brain", having clear diagrams that facilitate the reader''s ability to understand both basic physiology, and the principles of neurotransmission, etc. The role of the therapeutic alliance is helpfully acknowledged when promoting adherence and concordance, whilst the key medications prescribed for the specified disorders, and the associated psychopharmacology, are clearly described. "I would consider the publication as being essential reading for any undergraduate mental health nurse; the text also being a valuable learning resource in the development of curriculum content." Mark James, Senior Lecturer in Community Mental Health Nursing, University of South Wales, UK "I''m delighted to recommend this new, welcome and accessible resource: an excellent book with much to offer student and registered mental health nurses and nurse educators, in promoting safe and effective practice in medicines management. With an easy to understand style, Deborah Robertson provides a helpful overview of the legal and professional context, a practical introduction to undertaking drug calculations, and considers the complex issues around practical strategies for optimising adherence and patient outcomes. Complementing recommended non-pharmacological interventions for well-known mental health disorders, this book offers a refreshing perspective and special focus upon pharmacological treatment options, clearly explaining the use of specific medications, their main modes of action, effects and side effects, and recommendations for monitoring outcomes. In particular, this book offers the reader a very good grounding in understanding the pathophysiology and pharmacological treatment of mental health disorders, providing materials and highlighting further resources for use when working with the patient or service user, whether providing education, involving them in decision-making about medication taking, or actively monitoring outcomes. Another valuable feature is that the reader is encouraged to consolidate their learning through a series of reflective case studies that focus upon recognising need and treatment planning, and end of chapter multiple choice and numeracy questions." John Butler Senior Lecturer in Mental Health, University of Central Lancashire, UK "This book comprehensively addresses all the major psychotropic drugs a mental health nurse will encounter when undertaking medicines interventions. Each mental health diagnosis is explored and the related prescribed medicines covered in depth. I would recommend this book for use as a core text book in undergraduate studies, registered nurses who want to increase their knowledge base and for non-medical prescribing students as a baseline source to learn about the psychopharmacology of drugs they will prescribe." Steve Hemingway, Senior Lecturer in Mental Health, The University of Huddersfield, UK
