Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
‘...a unique and valuable support for all those involved or interested in drug therapy. This is a textbook that no university or pharmacy department, particularly those with employees studying at any level, and no pharmacist trying to develop their knowledge base should be without."

Dr Chris Green and John Sexton, The Pharmaceutical Journal

From customer reviews of the previous edition:

‘An essential textbook for final-year pharmacy students! … detailed chapters on all of the areas covered in the clinical modules. Topics range from chronic renal failure to ischaemic heart disease.’

‘The chapters introduce the topic and they discuss symptoms, causes, epidemiology and available drug treatment. At the end of each chapter there are some well-written case studies, with questions and answers to illustrate the topic of the chapter. These put the learning into practice and are very good reading for exam revision.’

‘… very readable and contains many illustrations, tables and graphs which aid your learning. It will also be a useful tool for the Pre-Reg year, especially for those entering Hospital Pharmacy. ‘

‘It is a great book, every pharmacist or those aspiring to be should have it in their book shelf.’ ‘For any pharmacy or medical student, this text is incredible. It's got a wealth of material, is easy to use and understand (without being simplistic), and does an excellent job of integrating the principles of clinical pharmacy and pharmacology. This is one textbook I would strongly recommend for pharmacy undergrads, medical students and anyone looking for a book to provide a solid foundation to their study of applied clinical pharmacology.’

‘As a clinical pharmacist I have found this text to be quite comprehensive in its approach to discussing patient pertinent therapeutic assessment and achieving desirable outcomes. …The case studies assist me to do my own assessment and reflect on my personal experiences. This would serve as a great tool both at the academic and practicing level.’
