The fun, fast, and effective way for nursing majors to master pharmacology! Finally! A pharmacology primer written for nursing (and other allied health) majors rather than pharmacy students. You might be apprehensive learning pharmacology, especially if you have little, if any, experience with drugs. Pharmacology can by mystifying. However, it becomes demystified as you read this innovative text, because your knowledge of basic science is used as the foundation to learn pharmacology. All you need is a working knowledge of basic science – and Pharmacology Demystified – and you’re well on your way to mastering this challenging topic. Pharmacology Demystified starts you off by fully explaining must-know concepts and practices in easily understood everyday language. Then, this unique guide leads you forward – at your own pace – to master the more complex aspects of pharmacology. Summations of key points, background information, quizzes at the end of each chapter, and a “final exam” reinforce learning every step of the way.

Book Description :

Pharmacology meets the rapidly emerging needs of programs training pharmacologic scientists seeking careers in basic research and drug discovery rather than such applied fields as pharmacy and medicine. While the market is crowded with many clinical and therapeutic pharmacology textbooks, the field of pharmacology is booming with the prospects of discovering new drugs, and virtually no extant textbook meets this need at the student level. The market is so bereft of such approaches that many pharmaceutical companies will adopt Hacker et al. to help train new drug researchers. The boom in pharmacology is driven by the recent decryption of the human genome and enormous progress in controlling genes and synthesizing proteins, making new and even custom drug design possible. This book makes use of these discoveries in presenting its topics, moving logically from drug receptors to the target molecules drug researchers seek, covering such modern topics along the way as side effects, drug resistance, pharmacogenomics, and even nutriceuticals, one in a string of culminating chapters on the drug discovery process. The book is aimed at advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in medical, pharmacy, and graduate schools looking for a solid introduction to the basic science of pharmacology and envisioning careers in drug research. Uses individual drugs to explain molecular actions Full color art program explains molecular and chemical concepts graphically Logical structure reflecting the current state of pharmacology and translational research Covers such intricacies as drug resistance and cell death Consistent format across chapters and pedagogical strategies make this textbook a superior learning tool

Book Description :

vii Drugs and sex are two topics about which most people have strong opinions and weak understanding. Knowledge of each can be gained in many ways, all with associated rewards and risks. Like all textbooks, this one was written in the belief that reading can foster learning. The book is intended to introduce principles of behavioral pharmacology to readers with little or no knowledge of the discipline but with an interest in how drugs affect human behavior. Gleaning anything of value from the text requires two things from the reader. The first is a willingness to accept an analysis of drug effects that shares little with folklore or common sense no tions of drug action. The second is a willingness to accept the fact that the behavioral effects of drugs are complex and depend upon a sizable number of pharmacological and behavioral variables. Unless one is aware of these factors and how they determine a drug's actions, the behavioral effects of drugs can be neither pre dicted nor meaningfully explained. If it does nothing else, this volume will make it obvious that the behavioral effects of drugs are lawful and can be predicted and understood on the basis of well-established relations between empirical phenomena. De scribing these relations and exploring how they allow behavioral ix x PREFACE pharmacologists to make sense of drug effects that are otherwise incomprehensible was a major goal in preparing the text.
