Healthcare delivery is changing across the world. Pharmacy practice is becoming more patient-centred, with both pharmacists and nurses playing a primary role in prescribing drugs in many healthcare settings. The challenge for pharmacy education is to ensure an appropriate understanding of how drugs work within the context of individual patient responses. Pharmacology for Pharmacy and the Health Sciences is specifically designed to meet this challenge. The book 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 clinical conditions. Taking a novel patient-centred approach, the book features a series of embedded workbooks, which develop clinical topics in the context of individual patients and their experience of illness, to relate the scientific basis of pharmacology to real-life pharmacy practice. The workbooks provide a highly structured student-directed educational environment in which the reader understands more and memorises less. They help the reader to interpret presenting symptoms, hospital clinical clerking and patient history notes, and understand the therapeutic strategy and clinical outcome, all within a simple student-friendly format. The patient-centred approach does not come at the expense of providing a sound scientific framework: each workbook is preceded by an explanation of the pathophysiology of the clinical conditions featured, and the pharmacological basis of the drugs used in each therapeutic area. Pharmacology for Pharmacy and 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.
