Build the knowledge and skills you need to safely and effectively prescribe drugs for primary care! Edmunds' Pharmacology for the Primary Care Provider, 5th Edition is written for Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, and other advanced practice prescribers. Unlike other pharmacotherapeutics textbooks, this guide focuses on the drugs most commonly used in primary care settings. A new chapter format and body-system approach make learning easier, and standardized clinical guidelines ensure best practices in care. Updated and impeccably accurate drug content includes the latest drug classes, specific drugs, and therapeutic uses in primary care. From a team of new authors led by educator Constance G. Visovsky, this text emphasizes health promotion strategies and adds new chapters on pharmacogenetics, drugs for ADHD, nutritional supplements, and more.
