Since the advent of penicillin in the 1940s, 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 program provides nurses with a look at antitubercular medications.
