Pathophysiology and Pharmacology in Nursing

Second Edition


May 2019 | 376 pages | Learning Matters

Pathophysiology and Pharmacology in Nursing has been carefully designed to provide an integrated introduction to both the biology of disease and the therapeutic agents that are used to manage them. It covers the basics of pharmacology, the core pathological concepts of inflammation, infection and cancer, as well as a systems based consideration of the pathophysiology and relevant pharmacology of common disorders.

New to the second edition:

  • All content updated and mapped to the 2018 NMC standards
  • Two new chapters on ‘Mental health conditions’ and ‘Renal conditions.

The ideal starting point for student nurses to develop a robust, integrated knowledge of human disease and pharmacology, enabling them to provide care that is based on up-to-date knowledge of this important subject.
