Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Melissa M. Ranieri, BS, PharmD (Temple University School of Pharmacy)
Description: This is one of the most comprehensive and widely used pharmacotherapy books by pharmacy students and pharmacists today. It covers a wide array of disease states with current, evidence-based recommendations in pharmacotherapy management. A unique feature is its use of a patient case-based approach to help readers apply information in a clinical practice setting.
Purpose: It is intended to be a comprehensive reference on pharmacotherapy management that reflects the needs of a dynamic healthcare profession. Despite the technological and research-based advances in medicine, this book maintains its patient-centered approach to learning and applying information. More than 860 cases are used to encourage critical thinking, employing a real-time approach to disease state management. Pharmacy students and healthcare practitioners can benefit from this style of learning because it gives them insight into the decision-making process and individualized approach that professionals must use every day to optimize patient care.
Audience: Pharmacy students or pharmacist clinicians may use this book to learn about and research medication therapies for various disease states. The authors are seasoned clinicians and professors with expertise in various specialties, including infectious disease, critical disease, and hematology. Although the book is tailored for pharmacy professionals, because it is current, evidence-based, and comprehensive, physicians, nurses, and other healthcare practitioners can benefit from it as well.
Features: Chapters are grouped into 19 sections that cover a wide array of disease states. New chapters in this edition include: arthritic disorders, women's health, neurologic disorders, neoplastic disorders, and pediatric sections. Each chapter opens with core principles highlighting main concepts that are discussed in further detail in the chapter. Since the book uses a case-based approach to learning, case numbers accompany each core principle, allowing readers to focus on areas that need reinforcement. Patient cases discuss how to approach challenging dilemmas that healthcare practitioners encounter routinely in practice, with thorough explanations and rationale. Evidence-based algorithms are featured, as well as clear tables with medication dosing information. Overall, the language is easier to comprehend compared to other pharmacotherapy references in use and may be best suited for students and first-time learners. Unique additions to this update are the online multimedia references that can further enhance learning, such as PowerPoint presentations, podcasts, images, and videos.
Assessment: This edition again succeeds in offering a comprehensive, updated reference covering over 100 different disease states. Pharmacotherapy is outlined in a format that is complete yet easy to understand, with helpful patient cases that emphasize key points. Readers' critical thinking and problem-solving skills are enhanced by this patient-based approach to learning. As its title implies, this book allows student and clinicians from various specialties to research and apply complex information to everyday patient care.
