About the Authors
  • The introduction of non-medical prescribing has meant that nurses, pharmacists and the professions allied to health are frequently faced with prescribing decisions. This text provides easily accessible information upon which to base these decisions when prescribing for patients with dermatological conditions ensuring safe and effective prescribing practices. Each chapter looks at a common skin disorder (including acne vulgaris and rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, urticaria and angio-oedema, infections and infestations, and skin cancer) and provides information on assessment, differential diagnosis, management strategies and prescribing. Key background information from the relevant life sciences (anatomy, physiology and pharmacology), as applied to clinical practice, is also provided. This book provides an invaluable guide for those healthcare professionals prescribing for, and treating, patients with dermatological conditions.

    • Covers causes, symptoms and treatments of a comprehensive range of dermatological conditions
    • Quick access format for use in a practical setting
    • Contains colour photographs of examples of many conditions
