Pharmacy, nursing and medical students and residents often receive limited exposure to pediatric pharmacology during the didactic component of their education. As a result, providing medical care for a pediatric patient can be intimidating to many health care professionals. This publication provides a pharmacological resource to help prepare for such pediatric clinical experiences.
The pharmacotherapy issues that are most likely to be encountered during one's exposure to pediatric medicine are covered in four sections:
- neonatal intensive care
- pediatric intensive care
- pediatric in-patient
- pediatric out-patient
Application and Review of Pediatric Pharmacotherapy is designed as a self-assessment tool, comprising over 1,000 multiple choice questions, to enhance the reader's knowledge of pediatric pharmacotherapy by allowing application of textbook information to case-based scenarios.
