This sixth edition also features a wealth of new content and updates — such as a new chapter on pediatric pharmacology, full-color design and illustrations, new QSEN integration, updated coverage of the impact of the Affordable Care Act, a refocused chapter on practice management, and more — to keep readers up to date on the latest issues affecting practice today.
