Gastroenterology and Nutrition is the latest book from the Pharmacotherapy Self-Assessment Program, sixth edition (PSAP-VI). This ninth book in the series provides an up-to-date review of therapeutic advancements and challenges in several important areas of gastroenterology and nutrition. The book is divided into three learning modules. The first module covers the gastroenterology topics of hepatitis B and C virus infection, drug-induced liver disease, and peptic ulcer disease. Module two includes chapters that update the reader on the drug and nutrition therapy of patients who have undergone bariatric surgery, the use of probiotics for various conditions, and the treatment of colon cancer. The third module focuses on nutrition issues in clinical practice, including chapters on nutrition in patients receiving renal replacement therapies, home parenteral nutrition, immunonutrition, and the use of dietary supplements. Each chapter has an extensive annotated bibliography that identifies key research articles, books, and other resources relevant to the major content areas. Gastroenterology and Nutrition is designed to assist pharmacists who want to update their knowledge regarding several key gastroenterology and nutrition conditions.
