Essential Prescribing is a brandnew text aimed at providing medical students with an easy-to-follow overview ofthe drugs they are most likely to encounter at medical school and as they starttheir medical careers. The book benefits from the same landscape format and approach as Scion'sbestselling Essential Examination.

Each class of drug is detailed using a common tabular format, based on thefollowing sections:Examples, Mode of Action, Routes ofDelivery, Indications, Cautions and contraindications, Interactions,Monitoring, Side-effects, Patient counselling. Thisconsistent approach helps the reader quickly find the pertinent information forthe common drugs and situations they are likely to come across, so they canbecome confident of prescribing the correct drugs for the patient inappropriate doses.

Thebook also features a questions and answer section at the book for the reader toassess their knowledge.

All medical students andfoundation doctors now have to prove their prescribing competence by taking therecently-introduced Prescribing Safety Assessment.

Essential Prescribing will not only arm the reader with the keyknowledge for this assessment, but will also provide them with the core prescribingknowledge they will need as their medical careers progress.
