This text uses a case-based approach to help master the fundamentals of drug therapeutics. Readers will learn the basics of common diseases and disorders and develop practical problem-solving skills for devising and implementing successful drug treatment regimens. Case studies integrated into each chapter illustrate key concepts and principles of therapeutics and provide practice in developing evidence-based therapeutic plans.
This updated ninth edition incorporates the latest drug treatments and therapeutic practices and guidelines. New chapters cover pharmacogenomics and osteoporosis. Transplantation is now broken into two chapters to ensure adequate coverage. Culturally competent care issues are now incorporated into many chapters. Over 850 tables provide quick access to comparative drug information, pharmacokinetic properties, treatment options, dosing guidelines, risk factors, and disease and diagnosis information.
A companion Web site offers the fully searchable text, animations of pathophysiologic concepts, and additional case studies.
