Pocket Prescriber Emergency Medicine is a concise, up-to-date prescribing guide containing all the "must have" information on a vast range of drugs that staff from junior doctors to emergency nurses, nurse prescribers, paramedics and other pre-hospital providers may encounter in the emergency setting.

Key features:
