    Description:

    The Drug Recognition Guide introduces an innovative method for recognising and categorising medications, enabling readers to easily identify the type and use of a generic drug by visually deconstructing its name. Through its creative use of colour-coded drug prefixes and suffixes, this pocket-sized guide makes generic drug names distinctive, logical, and easy to pronounce and remember. More than 700 drugs from over 200 different drug categories are catalogued and colour-highlighted--helping you understand what underlies a generic drug name. 

    Organised by class and use, the book’s ten chapters cover a comprehensive range of drugs, including chemotherapy and immunosuppressants, drugs that affect the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, drugs used to manage pain, treat infectious diseases, and many others. Each entry briefly summarises a particular class of drugs, describes the intended use of drugs within the class, and breaks down the “name stems” of individual drugs to reveal useful information and illustrate connections between chemically and therapeutically related medicines.  

    Presenting an original, easy-to-use approach to the complex subject of drug classification, this invaluable learning aid: 

    Provides a thorough yet accessible way for students and practitioners to increase their understanding of medications and their application 

    Helps students to clearly read and pronounce even the most difficult generic drug names 

    Highlights the letters in generic drug names to enable students to recognise drugs immediately 

    Explains who assigns a generic drug name and what the name represents 

    Includes an introduction to generic and proprietary drug names and design motifs 

    The Drug Recognition Guide is essential reading for nursing and medical students, pharmacy students and technicians, as well as nurse practitioners and trainee and junior doctors.

    Description:

    All registered nurses must have a thorough understanding and a strong knowledge of pharmacology, medicines administration, and the ability to recognise and react to the effects of medicines. Fundamentals of Pharmacology helps nursing and healthcare students develop the skills and confidence required to apply the fundamental principles of pharmacology and to offer safe, competent and compassionate care. Concentrating on the medicines that students are most likely to encounter in real-world practice, this textbook provides concise coverage of pharmacology, essential medicines management principles, legal and ethical issues, drug formulations, analgesics, immunisations, and much more. 

    Clinically focused chapters feature defined learning outcomes, multiple-choice questions, practical examples, and full-colour illustrations to aid readers’ comprehension of the complexities of pharmacology and care provision. The book utilises a straightforward, student-friendly approach to present ‘must-have’ information, with contributions from experienced clinicians and academics.  

    Describes how to use pharmaceutical and prescribing reference guides 

    Stresses the role and importance of compassionate care throughout 

    Contains a full range of pedagogical tools which enhance learning and recall 

    Aligns with current NMC Standards and Proficiencies for Registered Nurses and Nursing Associates 

    Supplemented and supported by a wealth of online extras and resources  

    Fundamentals of Pharmacology is essential reading for all nursing students, trainee nursing associates, post-registration nurses taking ‘nurse prescribing’ or ‘non-medical prescribing’ modules, and newly qualified nurses and nursing associates looking to better understand pharmacology.

    Description:

    Pharmacognosy (the science of biogenic or nature-derived pharmaceuticals and poisons) has been an established basic pharmaceutical science taught in institutions of pharmacy education for over two centuries. Over the past 20 years though it has become increasingly important given the explosion of new drugs, phytomedicines (plant medicines), nutraceuticals and dietary supplements – all of which need to be fully understood, tested and regulated.

    From a review of the previous edition:

    ‘Drawing on their wealth of experience and knowledge in this field, the authors, who are without doubt among the finest minds in pharmacognosy today, provide useful and fascinating insights into the history, botany, chemistry, phytotherapy and importance of medicinal plants in some of today’s healthcare systems. This is a landmark textbook, which carefully brings together relevant data from numerous sources and provides, in an authoritative and exhaustive manner, cutting-edge information that is relevant to pharmacists, pharmacognocists, complementary practitioners, doctors and nurses alike.’ The Pharmaceutical Journal

    ‘This is an excellent text book which provides fascinating insights into the world of pharmacognosy and the authors masterfully integrated elements of orthodox pharmacognosy and phytotherapy. Both the science student and the non-scientific person interested in phytotherapy will greatly benefit from reading this publication. It is comprehensive, easy to follow and after having read this book, one is so much more aware of the uniqueness of phytomedicines. A must read for any healthcare practitioner.’



    Features:

    Covers the history, biology and chemistry of plant-based medicines

    Covers pharmaceutical and neutraceuticals derived from plants

    Covers the role of medicinal plants in worldwide healthcare systems

    Book Description:

    For the past four decades, University College London has offered a renowned course on receptor pharmacology. Originating from this course, the perennially bestselling Textbook of Receptor Pharmacology has presented in-depth coverage of this rapidly expanding area of research. This third edition continues to combine current understanding of classical quantitative pharmacology and drug-receptor interactions with the basics of receptor structure and signal transduction mechanisms, providing an integrated analysis of the mechanisms of drug action at membrane receptors.

     

    The hallmark of this popular text is the uniting of four major approaches to the study of receptors:

    Molecular investigation of receptor structure

    Quantitative functional studies of agonists and antagonists

    Ligand binding

    Signal transduction at the cell membrane

     

    Maintaining the second edition’s focus on cell membrane receptors and the immediate signal transduction events at the membrane, this edition includes updated chapters on receptor structure and signal transduction by G-proteins and tyrosine kinases as well as enhancements to the quantitative treatment of drug-receptor interactions. Several chapters contain problems and worked-out solutions, giving students the ability to test their comprehension of the material. Hundreds of diagrams and figures further enhance the text.

    A time-saving resource and comprehensive learning tool, Textbook of Receptor Pharmacology, Third Edition carries on the tradition of providing in-depth, up-to-date coverage of this critical area that is both fundamental to the science of pharmacology and on the cutting edge of new drug development.

    Description:

    By any standard, the pharmaceutical industry's history has been a successful one. In addition to its profits and shareholder dividends, it has been seen by investors as relatively low risk and, largely, counter-cyclical to stock market trends. However, that important contribution appears to be petering out, with significant global implications for employees, shareholders, governments and patients. This is not just caused by the economic crisis. Long before this, several distinct but related streams of evidence emerged that now point to the stalling of the pharmaceutical industry. The Future of Pharma examines the causes of the industry's potential decline and offers a convincing and rigorous analysis of the options open to it. What emerges is a landscape defined, on the one hand, by the changing marketplace of mass-market consumers, institutional healthcare systems and wealthy individuals; and on the other by the alternate sources of commercial value - innovative therapies; super-efficient processes, supply chains and operations; and closer customer relations and increasingly tailored health services. The challenges to the pharmaceutical industry now and in the medium and long-term are very significant. Brian Smith's highly readable research findings are a wake-up call and a first step forward for anyone concerned with the future of the industry; whether executive, customer, policymaker or investor.

    Description:

    ‘The very last thing a drug regulator wishes to be able to say is, like Lord Byron (1788-1824), on the publication of his poem Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, ‘I awoke one morning and found myself famous.’

    The twelfth edition of this long-established textbook of clinical pharmacology (first published in 1960) continues its fine tradition of balancing science and practice for improved evidence-based drug therapy and good prescribing in therapeutic settings increasingly complicated by intercurrent disease and polypharmacy.

    Features:

    Coverage of all major therapeutic topics by body system.

    Introductory sections give brief chapter synopses.
