Correct medicines management for adults is a crucial skill that adult nursing students must develop in order to provide safe care to their patients. This book specifically supports pre-registration students in meeting the required competencies for medicines management needed to pass formal assessment and qualify as an adult nurse. 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.

Very good textbook with useful examples for pre-registration nursing students. Supplements other available textbooks well.

A very useful overview of key topics in medicine management. An excellent text that could be adopted for pre-registration module but more in-depth subject knowledge is required for CPD modules.

An excellent resource for any student nurse throughout their pre-registration nursing degree. An easy to follow book with clear and concise examples to aide in learning and teaching.
