About the Authors
  • Safe and effective prescribing is one of the pillars of medical practice but is much more complicated than it seems. Many new prescribers find prescribing extremely challenging, and a plethora of independent, multidisciplinary prescribers are also seeking guidance. However, pharmacology textbooks are rarely practical. They warn to 'take care when prescribing erythromycin to a patient on warfarin, as the INR may rise'. But what should the prescriber actually do? Surviving Prescribing fulfils an important need by offering practical advice for real-world prescribing problems. The book complements existing educational resources but adds a new perspective. Written by experienced contributors from a variety of professional backgrounds, the content speaks directly to the problems routinely seen in hospital prescribing. And all in one, pocket-sized volume. Whether revising for the national Prescribing Safety Assessment, preparing for starting on the wards, or looking for a quick reference guide, this book is an essential companion.

    • All chapters have been updated with attention to the latest guidelines and research, and new chapters cover anticoagulants, de-prescribing and e-prescribing
    • Contributions from experts from a variety of professional backgrounds ensures readers are provided with the most up-to-date, evidence-based prescribing information
    • Focuses on the practical, rather than the theoretical, empowering clinicians to prescribe independently
