"This book was written by a senior lecturer in health science with a great deal of input from nurses. It highlights the burden of treatment and is a resource for non-medical prescribers in identifying adverse drug reactions and for recognising definitions and classifications. ... The sections on ‘potential problems’ and ‘suggestions for prevention and management’ were particularly enlightening. The book provides ideas for better patient consultations through discussions about medications and their effects."
Nursing Standard
