A huge part of our nursing practice is dedicated to prescribing and administering medication, as well, as teaching our patients and their families about medication management. Recent research has revealed an abundance of knowledge about how medication absorption, distribution, and metabolism are affected by multiple factors, including how a patient’s genes impact the effects (or lack of effects) of medications. This knowledge is growing rapidly and we nurses need to be aware of the implications for our daily practice.
We will learn about new strategies for medication management of common disease states including respiratory, renal, and cardiovascular. We will study commonly-prescribed drugs and their combinations and how they may be highly-effective, ineffective, or even harmful to the patient. We will consider common clinical dilemmas and case studies and become more knowledgeable about drugs and their effects.
