Drug cards

  1. What kind of information should be included on drug cards? Right now I have:

    Class, indication, adverse effects, nursing implications, and teaching.

    Anything else that I should add? My instructor hasn't really said what she wants, just that she wants them.

    We have to know the general pharmacodynamics of the common meds too.

    For my pharm class we list generric name & trade name, class, indications, mechanism of action, Adverse effects, route & admin, drug-drug & drug-food interactions and sometimes any "standout" important info.

    Greetings.

    Attached are 12 Word documents which I made when I took pharmacology. All the information was based on the ATI study guide since that constituted the final exam in our class.

    They are formatted as 3x5 cards and were printed on individual 3x5 cards.

    Have at 'em if you think they'll help... they certainly worked for me.

    Again, they are entirely my own creation based on the information out of the ATI book. I make no promises as to their accuracy (though I rocked pharm so they couldn't be too bad).

    Feedback is welcome.
