2.  Although all areas of medicine, including pharmacology, have made great advances in the last century, the early roots of pharmacology still apply for the nurse and other health professionals. The early roots of pharmacology were: 

  1. To understand how drugs take their effects.
  2. To create new drugs as quickly as possible.
  3. To use plants to relieve symptoms of disease.
  4. To apply products to relieve human suffering.

Answer: 4

Rationale: 

  1. The early root of pharmacology was not to understand how drugs take their effects.
  2. The early root of pharmacology was not to create new drugs quickly.
  3. The early root of pharmacology was not to use plants to relieve disease.
  4. The early root of pharmacology was to relieve human suffering.

Learning Outcome 2

Compare and contrast the terms drug, pharmacology, and pharmacotherapy.

3.  Although many substances can be considered to be a drug, a drug is considered to be:

  1. Any substance that is taken to prevent, cure, or reduce symptoms of a medical condition.
  2. Any substance that is found in nature, or that normally occurs in the body.
  3. Any substance that is synthesized and tested in the laboratory setting. 
  4. Any substance that can be isolated from natural substances in nature.

Answer: 1

Rationale: 

  1. A drug is considered to be any substance that is taken to prevent, cure, or reduce symptoms of a medical condition.
  2. A drug is not a substance that is found in nature or that normally occurs in the human body.

4.  Pharmacotherapy is a critical intervention for many conditions, and a key part of nursing intervention. Pharmacotherapy can best be described as:

  1. The application of natural substances to cure diseases.
  2. Understanding the difference between trade and generic medications.
  3. The study of medicine and drug therapy.
  4. The application of drugs for prevention and treatment.

Answer: 4

Rationale:

  1. Pharmacotherapy is not the application of natural substances to cure disease.
  2. Pharmacotherapy is not only understanding the difference between trade and generic drugs.
  3. Pharmacotherapy is not just the study of medicine and drug therapy.
  4. Pharmacotherapy is the application of drugs for prevent and treatment.
