Drugs in Use: Case Studies for Pharmacists and Prescribers helps bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge about medicines and the practical application to patients.
The new sixth edition has been extensively revised to ensure that a primary care focus is included whenever possible, in order to reflect the fact that drug management of chronic conditions increasingly takes place in primary care.
The book is designed to discuss management approaches for an increasingly elderly population with numerous comorbidities with an emphasis on the need for person-centred care.
There are new chapters on atrial fibrillation, chronic asthma, general surgery, sepsis, deprescribing and supporting adherence.
With self-study questions and answers to accompany each case, if you are a student, it will be a valuable resource to help you as an aid to your your studies and for pharmacists and prescribers, particularly new GP practice-based pharmacists, as a useful tool to your continuing professional development.
