Pharmacology Drug Cards - How did you make yours?
0Apr 6, '09 by ICor9:24Hi Everyone!
I just started Phram and we need to make our drug cards like I am sure many of you may have already done. I have seen a couple "templates" and samples, and made a few myself, but I just wanted to get feedback from everyone..
What tips or tricks did you find for making yours in a way that was helpful for studying & memorization?
Formatting, highlighting, color coding, anything... ?? Justing copying all that info in pencil just isn't getting it for me. I finish, then I go back and look at it to study and my eyes blur and cross and my brain shuts down like "Oh too much info... " LOL :chuckle
I have the 5x7 index cards, biggest I can find. They should do the trick cuz the smaller ones don't cut it.
Thanks for any ideas!

0Apr 7, '09 by drugstorecowgirl214When I would make out med cards I would write out:
#1. trade & generic name; classification
#2. action of drug
#3. side effects (at first I would list ALL the side effects, then eventually narrowed it down to what would harm/kill the patient....for the ones that could potentially kill I highlighted them, and then for the ones that'd harm I would underline those.)
#4. Nursing implications
As we went along some of the drugs dosages just became "standard" if you will, but when I got to the emergent cardiac meds I would include the dosages.
That was my way of making them out. I'm sure you'll see others!
Good luck to you!
