This book aims to provide an easily accessible quick reference guide for advanced nursing students preparing to undertake practical examinations to assess advanced clinical practice competence, and students preparing for practical examinations in non-medical prescribing assessment. These examinations are commonly known as objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs). The book is a preparation and revision tool, designed to be read in conjunction with any recommended core clinical textbooks: however, along with giving students step-by-step instructions on performing well in OSCE scenarios, it also gives guidance to academic staff on preparing to teach and mark OSCEs. This book uses a case study approach to OSCEs in a coherent, consistent, and easily understandable style. Both authors are clinical academic nurse practitioners who regularly work in clinical practice in conjunction with teaching advanced nurse practitioner and non-medical prescribing students.

This practical guide to pharmacology is unusual in its approach. Instead of examining the normal effects of drugs this book looks at the adverse effects. With the advent of nurse prescribing it is essential that nurses are familiar with the common adverse effects, how to recognise them and how to deal with them. The book is divided into three sections. The first examines the pharmacology of drugs i.e. what the body does to drugs (pharmocokinetics), what the drugs do to the body (pharmocodynamics), and how adverse reactions can result from these two processes. Section two looks at putting the scientific knowledge into action through an examination of nurse administration and prescribing, drug development and the issue of patient compliance and empowerment. Section three consists of twelve case studies which describe various scenarios in which there have been adverse drug effects. Throughout the book concepts are explained using examples so that the nurse can relate the concept of adverse effect to the drugs she is familiar with.
