Clinical Dosage Calculations is a local, full-colour text covering the important aspects of dosage calculations students require to deal with this essential part of clinical practice. An applied skills-focused text, Brotto uses real-life cases, worked examples and real medication charts and labels to engage students. Starting with the fundamental skills to help students deal with mathematics and familiarise themselves with medication charts and labels, the text then moves on to specialist area chapters, allowing them to deepen their skills in a clinical context. Students engage in the activities of each chapter as an introduction to the concept before moving onto the final chapter where they can test their overall knowledge. Got it: Dosage Calculations is an online student revision platform that enables students to check their understanding of concepts learned in class. Based on the 2nd edition of Clinical Dosage Calculations, topics range from basic arithmetic to more complex calculations of medications.
