This book applies pharmacology to nursing practice, with the overall aim of enhancing
patient care. The main focus of the book is adverse drug reactions, and the implications for
patient monitoring. Adverse drug reactions account for around 4% of UK hospital admissions.
Over 70% of these problems are avoidable (Pirmohamed et al. 2004): the monitoring

Practitioners 1985, DH 2000, Audit Commission 2001, Committee of Public Accounts 2006).
the main lesson to draw from this broad range of strategies is the importance of community

Any book is like a reflection of its authors in a stream. It captures something of the story
of who they are, but distorts the image at the same time. Such is the nature of water—
such is the nature of reflection. We hope that the reader will find something of us here
that is recognisable, in a human sense. There is much of us in the Tidal Model. However,
expressing that, as with anything else, is often difficult. Words are great tools, but as we
marvel at their beauty, we may fear what we might actually do with them.
