Drugs in Use: Case Studies for Pharmacists and Prescribers helps you to bridge
the gap between theoretical knowledge about medicines and the practical application
to your patients.
With an ever increasing shift of focus from theory to practice, this book promotes evidence-based medicine and illustrates how you can optimise drug therapy in response to the needs of your individual patients. It will prove a valuable resource to pharmacists and prescribers.
The cases have been updated to reflect recent changes in medicines use and this new edition boasts:
· New evidence concerning optimal care
· Additional coverage of situations with difficulties in treatment optimisation
· Significant focus on major advances in therapeutics
· Self study questions and answers within each case.
With self study questions and answers to accompany each case, you will find this a useful resource throughout your career. As a student, it will assist your studies and as a practicing pharmacist or prescriber in hospital or community it will aid your continuing professional development.
