Pharmacy students and practitioners now have increased responsibilities in the areas of prescribing and treatment. Modern therapeutics requires an understanding of the disease process, clinical pharmacology and the supporting evidence from scientifically designed clinical trials. The process of selecting optimal drug regimens is a team effort and depends upon the skills of pharmacists working with physicians, nurses and other health care professionals. This multi-author text, written by pharmacists and physicians, is suitable for those who work in both primary and secondary care. It provides a complete and detailed account of all major aspects of therapeutics and rational drug use in a readable and attractive style.

  • Written by an experienced multi-disciplinary team of pharmacists and doctors
  • New chapter on prescribing for pharmacists.

Review:

"...a unique and valuable support for all those involved or interested in drug therapy.
This is a textbook that no university or pharmacy department, particularly those with employess studying at any level, and no pharmacist trying to develop their knowledge base should be without." Dr Chris Green and John Sexton, The Pharmaceutical Journal, July 2003
any pharmacy or medical student, this text is incredible. It's got a wealth of material, is easy to use and understand (without being simplistic), and does an excellent job of integrating the principles of clinical pharmacy and pharmacology. This is one textbook I would strongly recommend for pharmacy undergrads, medical students and anyone looking for a book to provide a solid foundation to their study of applied clinical pharmacology." 2nd Year Pharmacy Student, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, April 2004
