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

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Barbara L Giacomelli, PharmD., MBA (McKesson Provider Technologies)
Description: This is collection of cases to help teach pharmacology of various disease states and conditions. It presents relevant cases found in clinical practice along with appropriate therapies.
Purpose: This book is designed to teach students how to manage various conditions and/or disease states they'll encounter in practice. It is a worthwhile teaching tool.
Audience: It is written to educate practitioners who will manage patients in healthcare settings, primarily pharmacists and nurses. The cases are examples of those practitioners deal with everyday.
Features: Each case is outlined in great detail with relevant questions for practitioners to answer at the end. The cases cover diseases and conditions affecting all parts of the body, with the longest section on infectious diseases. Cases also have additional follow-up questions to help educate. The book is written at the level of a student who has a basic understanding of pharmacology.
Assessment: Although this is the eighth edition, most of the cases and medications appeared in previous editions. However, it is a nice supplement to use when teaching pharmacology to help reinforce medication therapy treatments and patient monitoring. It helps students use critical thinking skills to review the case and answer the questions.
