Each drug monograph provides the necessary information for safe and effective drug administration. The authors recognize that the decision-making process related to drug administration is a cyclical one. For example, assessments are made both prior to and after drug administration. Thus, nursing diagnoses and interventions may change as a result of an achieved therapeutic effect, therapeutic failure, manifestation of an adverse effect, or demonstration of a learning need. The authors believe that the users of this drug reference will find that the clear and logical design of the drug monographs facilitates decision making and supports the nursing process.
