    as the title says which pharmacology book would you reccommend? On our Core skills module we were told a pharmacology book would be really helpful. Im really not sure if the midwives pocket formulary would have enough information in, or if i should go for a nurse's pharmacology book.

    Midwives pocket formularly is an excellent book! Very easy to read and learn from. For much more detail try Pharmacology for Midwives, however this is quite a hard book to read and therefore i would recommend the pocket formularly! You could also register with the British National Formularly online for free where you can look at a vast array of drugs and your wards should have a paper copy of the BNF available at all times.

    If you ask at the hospital pharmacolgy they'll give you an old BNF, well probably 2009 as there updated every 6 months!
