Book description
Consumers are increasingly likely to treat their illnesses with over the counter (OTC) drug products without seeking advice from a physician. Advice about OTC medications is frequently sought from a pharmacist prior to a doctor's visit. This work is a useful resource that aims to enhance pharmacists' abilities to provide consumers with OTC products and related information. Now in one easy-to-use volume, pharmacy students, practitioners and other health professionals will find a comprehensive discussion of non-prescription treatment. Completely updated, the book focuses on an integrated therapeutic approach to providing pharmaceutical care to self-treating patients by emphasizing the following processes: patient assessment - discussing customized patient interview questions and physical assessment techniques; triage - focusing on the decision-making process that indicates either medical referral or self-treatment; self-care options - including OTC products, preventive and non-drug measures, and alternative remedies such as herbal products and other dietary supplements, as well as homeopathic products; produce evaluation and comparison - comparing the safety and efficacy of products and using patient factors and preferences in selecting the appropriate product; patient counselling - emphasizing the objectives of the treatment, the information patients should know about their disorders and the appropriate use of OTC medications or other remedies; and evaluation of outcomes. Other new features of the Handbook include: tables of major trade name products; treatment algorithms; assessment Q&A section that includes problem-solving directives for students; easy-to-read, two-colour format; patient education information presented in easily accessible boxes; chapter section on alternative remedies where applicable; appendix key to case studies; and appendix of pregnancy categories for non-prescription medications.
