Anti-Infective Medication Therapy Series
SERIES OVERVIEW:

Since the advent of penicillin in the 1940's, medications have played an important role in the treatment of infectious diseases. Initially focused on the development and use of antibiotics to treat bacterial infections, in recent decades, the focus has broadened to include antifungal and antiviral agents. Because nurses are frequently called upon to administer anti-infective agents, this series was developed to provide the information they need to recognize the signs and symptoms of infection, the medications typically used in treatment and the associated precautions and side effects.

This comprehensive 6-part series looks at all the classes of medications currently used to treat infectious diseases and the role of the nurse in providing both patient care and patient and family teaching.  The program differentiates between bacteria, viruses, yeast and fungi, and gives common examples of each.  Both hospital and community acquired infections are addressed.  It begins with an overview of the assessment process, including signs and symptoms of disease and laboratory tests now available for diagnosis.  Detailed information is given regarding the various treatment agents, their side effects, indications and contraindications, and the appropriate use of single agent and multiple agent therapy to treat infection.  Included is information on monitoring of medication blood levels and indicators of significant side effects.  Also discussed are the development and proliferation of drug-resistant microbes and the role of the healthcare provider preventing this from occurring.

The programs in this series include workbooks that can be ordered separately.

 This series is eligible for a total of 3 contact hours of continuing nursing education credits.
