It is clearly structured around the NMC Essential Skills Clusters for medicines management, covering legal aspects, drugs calculations, administration, storage, record keeping, introductory pharmacology, patient communication and contextual issues in medication. The book is written in user-friendly language and uses patient scenarios to explain concepts and apply theory to practice.

Great book for all nursing students. It provides an overview to what can seem a complicated and frightening task for the neophyte nurse.

Text not too intense - each section clearly set out and written in a manner to keep you interested ( even if you are not) . Good resource for those who might find maths difficult to grasp or for those who might need to recap on mathamatical formulas. Good use of scenarios , case studies and activities to challange the reader throughout the text - Supported by evidence based practice . Would recommend for pre-course reading and for use post reg too. "tight" type font made it difficult to read for long periods.

Text recommended for 2nd year BSc nursing students, inparticular all students are advised to refer to chapter 1 for drug calculations and chapter 2 or leagl issues. The text is presented in an easy to read logical format for students.
