Pharmacotherapy Handbook delivers both the key points pharmacists need to know in practice and the information students studying for the boards need to pass.  The Handbook delivers the essential information you need to confidently make drug therapy decisions for more than 140 diseases and disorders most commonly encountered in a clinical setting. Whether you’re a student, pharmacist, or hospital administrator, you’ll find answers quickly and easily in this reliable, carry-anywhere guide.

Featuring a convenient alphabetized presentation, the book utilizes text, tables, figures, and treatment algorithms to make important drug data readily accessible and easily understandable.

  • Disease state definition
  • Pathophysiology
  • Clinical presentation
  • Diagnosis
  • Treatment
  • Evaluation of therapeutic outcomes

Nine appendices include Pediatric Pharmacotherapy, Geriatric Assessment, Critical Care Patient Assessment, Drug Allergies, Drug-Induced Hematologic Disorders, Drug-Induced Liver Disease, Drug-Induced Pulmonary Disease, Drug-Induced Kidney Disease, and Drug-Induced Ophthalmic Disorders
