She has been the Chair of the UK Renal Pharmacy Group since 1996, and was made Associate Professor of Pharmacy Practice, UCL School of Pharmacy in 2011. It has been fully updated for this fifth edition to include up to 100 additional drugs, while maintaining the clear structure and format that is easy to use and simple to follow in the busy clinical setting. Fully updated and expanded to include over 800 drugs, this 4th edition (2014) provides pharmacists with timely and easily-accessible information to support prescribing decisions for patients with renal impairment including renal replacement therapy.

She has over 25 years' experience, with major interests in transplantation and auto-immune renal disease.

This book combines the reference material of a nephrology textbook with the everyday relevance of a clinical handbook. It is also available online which I suspect will extend the readership from predominantly renal pharmacists to other groups. Each monograph has a standard format, which includes information about the drug’s clinical use, its dose in normal renal function, and its pharmacokinetics and metabolism. The section on pharmacokinetics is particularly useful as it gives the prescriber access to information so that first principles can be applied.

One limitation is that the handbook is a UK publication so some of the drugs and dosing recommendations are not relevant to the Australian situation. Prescribing or administering a medication outside the manufacturers information may render the medicine being used off-label.

The information contained in this resource has been compiled from a wide range of sources and from the clinical experience of the editorial board of the UK Renal Pharmacy Group, all of whom are involved in the pharmaceutical care of renally-impaired patients.
