Book description
A new edition of the companion volume to "Pharmacotherapy: A Pathophysiologic Approach". It features a problem-solving approach, providing over 100 case studies that require the reader to critically think, research and evaluate each case. Accompanying exercises provide practice in identifying findings and assessments, desired outcomes, therapeutic alternatives, optimal plans, assessment parameters and patient counselling recommendations. The edition includes more complex patient cases including those with multiple disease states and drug-related problems. Modern topics include obesity, herpes simplex and smoking cessation.
The essential companion, PHARMACOTHERAPY CASEBOOK: A Patient-Focused Approach, 5th Edition, now features 147 patient case studies (16 more than the previous edition). The case studies enhance students’ decision-making for clinical pharmacy practice, and bring to life the scientific information presented in PHARMACOTHERAPY, 5th Edition. Cases offer varying ranges of complexity, from simple to multiple disease states, and incorporate new diagnostic techniques, therapeutic approaches and monitoring strategies.
