Classroom tested and reviewed, the second Canadian edition draws upon the strengths of a successful first Canadian edition and eight US editions that have together helped over 600,000 faculty and students allay math anxiety and more confidently perform accurate calculations. This text is directed at the student or professional who feels uncomfortable with mathematics and wants to improve their ability to perform accurate drug dosage calculations.As a pioneer Canadian text in the topic of medication calculations, the authors have transcended provincial practices to provide a nation-wide perspective on dosage calculations. The International System (SI) of units is used almost exclusively and medication dosages and drug labels have been vetted with the current Canadian drug data base, so that you, as a beginning professional, will be able to recognize and interpret drug labels and dosages. The importance of avoiding medication errors is also highlighted by the incorporation of applied critical thinking skills, to prepare you for real-life nursing practice situations.This winning combination of Canadian labels, life-size photos and an easy-to-follow three-Step approach to Dosage Calculations, makes this text is a must-have for all Canadian nursing students.
