Practical Nursing Education. A Guide for Teaching Basic Concepts and Skills in the Use of Drugs. Pamphlet Number 4.
Smith, Elizabeth M.
Intended to assist teachers in either basic or continuing education programs to convey knowledge, techniques, and attitudes pertaining to drugs, the pamphlet outlines instruction which is estimated to require 70 to 100 hours of which 50 to 80 should be scheduled for classroom work and 20 hours for clinical work. Three units containing concepts fundamental to the use of drugs should be presented early in the program in association with some supervised clinical experiences. The remaining units concern concepts for the use of specific drugs such as disinfectants, and drugs that affect the skin and mucous membrane and drugs that affect the circulatory system and the blood, the respiratory system, the gastrointestinal system, the urinary system, the nervous system, and the endocrine and reproduction systems, and should be correlated with teaching in the clinical area and supervised experiences with patients. Each unit outline includes time allotment, objectives, subjects for discussion, and suggested teaching methods. Included are a bibliography and a list of pharmaceutical companies from which teaching materials are available. (JK)
