Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is a collection of 53 clinical cases with USMLE-style questions that is designed to aid students in preparation for course examinations as well as board examinations in the process of licensure certification.
Purpose: The authors designed this book with a focus on an approach to learning pharmacology, an approach to disease, and an approach to reading in order that students can master the topic of pharmacology and practice evidence-based medicine throughout their career.
Audience: This book will be a valuable asset for any students who need to understand drug therapy for their future practice and for those who are involved in teaching students about the therapeutic use of drugs.
Features: Each case provides clinically relevant information and open-ended questions focused on basic science concepts with some clinical applications. The answers to the open-ended questions are divided into four parts: part I provides a summary, a straightforward answer, and clinical correlations; part II provides an approach to the basic science concepts including objectives, definitions of basic terminology, and discussion of specific classes of drugs related to the clinical case; part III contains comprehensive questions including many USMLE-style multiple choice questions; and part IV provides pharmacology pearls to help students retain important information related to the case. Similar cases can also be found at McGraw-Hill's AccessMedicine, which contains many of the real life cases from the Toy Case Files™, which includes clinical cases in anatomy, emergency medicine, microbiology, pathology, pharmacology, and physiology. These clinical cases markedly facilitate the integration of the basic sciences into the practice of clinical medicine.
Assessment: This is an excellent component of the many Lange products that are available to both teachers and students to foster the understanding of drugs used in clinical practice. "
