This innovative new textbook is one of the first to integrate the science of pharmacy with practice. Integrated Pharmacy Case Studies provides a case study approach to pharmacy education, demonstrating in the most practical way possible the relevance of pharmaceutical science in practice.
The book includes more than 90 individual case studies based on real-life scenarios, each of which places the patient at the centre of understanding. The case studies have been developed between clinical practitioners and pharmaceutical scientists, ensuring an integrated approach to the topic.
Each case draws on the fundamental aspects of pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmacology, pharmaceutics and therapeutics ñ giving you practical knowledge of what to expect. They include examples relating to the most recent developments in basic science research, drug development and delivery, and clinical practice.
The featured cases cover all the main conditions (as well as some rarer disorders), guiding and challenging your students with each patient encounter.
Integrated Pharmacy Case Studies bridges the gap between science and practice in pharmacy education. It is important reading for undergraduate students and academics at schools of pharmacy, pharmacy technicians, pre-registration pharmacists and junior pharmacists.
