Course Summary

The science of pharmacology and the responsibility relationship building with patients are important elements of a health professional’s clinical knowledge and skills to provide safe and appropriate pharmacotherapeutic regimens in everyday practice. Interdisciplinary members of the health team are required to continually interpret specific patient health data to implement and evaluate outcomes of medication treatment. All health clinicians are increasingly relying on practice guidelines and the applied specialized training of health team members when obtaining the patient health history to improve therapeutic medication regimens, avoid adverse effects, and to safely and effectively treat a disease state. This is the third course in the Basics of Pharmacology series.
