About the author:
April Hazard Vallerand Ph.D. RN FAAN, College of Nursing Alumni Endowed Professor at Wayne State University has focused her research on understanding the factors that affect the functional status and the barriers to improving pain management in patients with pain in a variety of settings. Her current research project, which was funded by the National Cancer Institute, focuses on improving functional status in African Americans with cancer pain.
A recognized nursing leader and scholar, Dr. Vallerand is widely published on the topic of pain management, including the maintenance and improvement of functional status in patients with chronic pain, pain-related disparities, cancer pain management, symptom clusters in patients with cancer, pharmacological management of pain, the use of opioids in the management of chronic pain, self-treatment of pain in the community, and the perceived control and coping in patients with chronic pain.
Dr. Vallerand earned her BSN from Mount St. Mary’s College, MSN from California State University, and Ph.D. in nursing from the University of Pennsylvania. She also held a postdoctoral fellowship in Psychosocial Oncology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing.
Reviews about the ebook:
- Mandi Nicole:
Required for a nursing program, glad to receive the latest edition and cheaper price in new condition, have already used book several times for pharmacology class and so happy I purchased since received an A on my presentation due to having this book. Lists the medications: generic, trade name, classification, indications, action, pharmacokinetics, interactions, side effects, route/dosage, nursing implications, implementation, patient teaching, evaluation/desired outcomes, contraindications/precautions.
This book has a LOT of drugs that are new to the Pharmaceutical world. I love that I have the handheld version because I can carry it on my phone and if I need something, I can just bring it up on my phone and review it with the patient if needed.
- Bre Sutton:
Came earlier than expected and is in great condition! I’ve used older editions in the past and absolutely love the content. I preordered the book so I was also able to get a discount on the book.
Every nurse needs a nursing drug guide. Let’s face it. Nurses know a lot, but not everything. The drug book really lays it out so that nurses can explain to their patients the effects of the drug. What it is doing in their body and the possible side effects. It’s more professional than googling a medication or getting it off of web MD.
Helpful book with lots of good information on lots of drugs, but man.
This is a must-have purchase for a nursing student. It tells you what you need to know without all the “fluff”.
Needed for nursing, good price for this valuable resource.
Very good for meds research for nurses and students!
Saved me in pharmacology for nursing!
