PPD’s Nursing Drug Guide (NDG) is the only drug guide that considers the needs of Filipino nurses as it lists pharmaceutical products available in the Philippines. PPD’s NDG provides concise information on indications, dosages, drug action and interaction, adverse reactions, precautions, pharmacology, and other valuable practice information.
PPD's Nursing Drug Guide was designed and published after conducting a comprehensive study of the needs and wants of Filipino nursing students and professional nurses.
PPD's Nursing Drug Guide provides concise information on more than 880 generic drugs and 4,000 brands that are prescribed by doctors and used by patients in the country today. It contains an updated listing of newly-launched drugs from both multinational and local pharmaceutical companies that are used in various clinical settings. Drugs are organized according to the therapeutic classifications (TC) by which they are registered with and approved by the Philippine Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) and then listed alphabetically under their TC. Vital drug information on herbal preparations and multi-component drugs are also incorporated.
PPD's Nursing Drug Guide provides Nursing Considerations for every drug entry that are presented in ADPIE (Assessment, Diagnosis, Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation) format as endorsed by the Association of Deans of Philippine Colleges of Nursing.
PPD's Nursing Drug Guide is the only reference that the student needs for a drug information, complete with nursing considerations for Philippine medicines. No need for another drug directory.
