Overview

More than 150 cases help you develop the problem-solving and decision-making skills necessary to succeed in real-world clinical practice

Pharmacotherapy Casebook provides the case studies you need to learn how to identify and resolve drug therapy problems you’re most likely to encounter in real-world practice.

This new edition is packed with 157 patient cases and makes the ideal study companion to the eighth edition of DiPiro’s Pharmacotherapy: A Pathophysiologic Approach. The case chapters in this book are organized into organ system sections that correspond to those of the DiPiro textbook. By reading the relevant chapters in Pharmacotherapy: A Pathophysiologic Approach you will be able to familiarize yourself with the pathophysiology and pharmacology of each disease state included in this casebook.

Everything you need to develop expertise in pharmacotherapy decision making:

  • Realistic patient presentations include medical history, physical examination, and laboratory data, followed by a series of questions using a systematic, problem-solving approach
  • Compelling range of cases – from the uncomplicated (a single disease state) to the complex (multiple disease states and drug-related problems)
  • Diverse authorship from more than 190 clinicians from nearly 100 institutions
  • Coverage that integrates the biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences with therapeutics
  • Appendices containing valuable information on pharmacy abbreviations, laboratory tests, mathematical conversion factors, anthropometrics, and complementary and alternative therapies
