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.
