Pharmacology for Pharmacy and the Health Sciences introduces pharmacology in a way that is tailored to the needs of pharmacy and health care students. It provides an understanding of drug action at the cellular and molecular level, which is interfaced seamlessly with an explanation of the clinical use of drugs to treat common conditions. Taking a novel patient-centred approach, the book features a series of embedded workbooks which explore clinical topics in the context of individual patients and their experience of illness, and so relate the scientific basis of pharmacology to real-life pharmacy practice. The workbooks help you to interpret presenting symptoms, hospital clinical clerking, and patient history notes, and to understand the therapeutic strategy and clinical outcome, all within a simple reader-friendly format. Pharmacology for Pharmacy and the Health Sciences is the perfect course companion for anyone needing to develop a solid understanding of pharmacology and its impact on pharmacy and clinical practice.
