Overview

This textbook provides a basis of pharmacology for pharmacy technicians. Throughout Understanding Pharmacology for Pharmacy Technicians, anatomy and physiology are discussed in relation to various disorders and associated pharmacotherapies to give the pharmacy technician students a context for how drugs work. Students using this text will learn the therapeutic effects of prescription medications, nonprescription medications, and alternative therapies commonly used to treat diseases affecting that system, and their adverse effects. An emphasis is placed on practical applications for the technician. What types of issues will techs encounter at work? What is their role in patient education? How do they work with the pharmacist? Key Features throughout the book include:
• Cases to open each chapter, along with questions for discussion
• Pronunciations for difficult terms or words such as disease names
• Figures and illustrations
• Alerts that point out areas of potential dangers or errors, including look-alike/sound-alike drugs.
• Practice points, including mention of any FDA-required patient medication guides, and any "special" drug storage and dispensing considerations, including beyond-use dating of open multi-use products.
• Commonly used and comprehensive drug tables.
• Chapter review questions The book's content is written to meet ASHP accreditation standards and therefore is one of the most comprehensive books on the market related to pharmacology for technicians.
