Overview

This revised fourth edition of Drugs in Use presents a series of clinical case studies to illustrate how pharmacists can optimise drug therapy in response to the needs of individual patients. Patient information is interspersed with questions and answers suitable for self-study or group discussion and a pharmaceutical care plan is included within each chapter. The cases included address situations which are commonly encountered or associated with Particular difficulties in treatment individualisation. Those in which major advances in therapeutics have recently occurred are also covered. All case studies from the previous edition have been updated and revised, and new chapters have been included on the following:

eczema

psoriasis

Crohn's disease

oncology

substance misues.

Translating the knowledge acquired during undergraduate and postgraduate pharmacy courses into the clinical skills required to optimise the therapy of patients can seem a daunting task. This book was conceived as a method of helping pharmacists and prescribers to 'bridge the gap' between the acquisition of theoretical knowledge about drugs and its practical application to individual patients. It will be an invaluable resource for pharmacy students, pre-registration pharmacists and practising pharmacists. It will also be a valuable resource for medical students and non-medical prescribers.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Zina T. Saidi, Pharm.D.(Jeanes Hospital)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a book that presents clinical cases encountered by clinical pharmacists in all specialties. The previous edition was published in 2004.
Purpose: The purpose is to bridge the gap between theory and clinical knowledge. Pharmacists' roles have changed in recent years, as they are becoming more active members of the medical team. This book continues the professional development of pharmacists, helping them become better and more effective communicators.
Audience: The book is intended written for consultant and community pharmacists, as well as others who want to improve their clinical skills. It also would be helpful for newly graduated pharmacy students on clinical rotations and residents.
Features: The topics covered by the clinical case studies are those that pharmacists encounter in their practices, such as hypertension, renal failure, Crohn's disease, dementia, eczema, and managing adverse events. The cases and questions appear at the beginning of each chapter, with the answers provided at the end to allow readers to work through cases. Recommended reading lists appear at the end of each chapter to supplement the information provided in the answers. The book includes notes on how to use it, as well as a list of abbreviations.
Assessment: This edition includes new disease states in oncology, Crohn's disease, and psoriasis, and many chapters have been revised to reflect the major advances that have occurred since the previous edition. Readers should note that the lab values are those used in the U.K. and some of the drugs have not been approved in the U.S. References in the answer sections refer to British and European guidelines.
