Main description

Learn the essential principles of pharmacotherapy and how they apply to today's healthcare

Pharmacotherapy Principles & Practice, Third Edition uses a solid evidence-based approach to teach you how to design, implement, monitor, and evaluate medication therapy. This trusted text provides everything you need to gain an in-depth understanding of the principles essential to the optimal pharmacotherapy of disease. In order to be as clinically relevant as possible, the disease states and treatments discussed focus on disorders most often seen in clinical practice. Chapters were written or reviewed by pharmacists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and physicians who are authorities in their fields.

The book opens with an introductory chapter followed by chapters on pediatrics, geriatrics, and palliative care. The remainder of the text consists of ninety-eight disease-based chapters that review etiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical presentation, followed by therapeutic recommendations for drug selection, dosing, and patient monitoring.
