Part 3: Drug dosage forms and the routes of drug administration
AbstractIn this, the third in a series of articles on practice-related aspects of pharmacology, drug therapy, and applied nursing pharmacology, we focus on the role of the nursing practitioner in administering prescribed medication to patients in their care. Specific emphasis is placed on different dosage forms, as well as the more commonly encountered routes of drug administration. This series uses excerpts and diagrams with permission from the 2nd edition of Pharmacology in Clinical Practice: Application Made Easy for Nurses and Allied Health Professionals, and is compiled and expanded upon by the author.
