Overview

Lifestyle Modifications in Pharmacotherapy

This innovative text equips pharmacists and pharmacy students with the skills to assist patients in managing existing conditions and controlling the development of preventable disorders. The text demonstrates how important lifestyle modification strategies—including nutrition, physical activity, weight control, and smoking cessation—can be used in a pharmacy setting to improve patients' well-being.

Case studies show how lifestyle modifications can positively impact patients with chronic diseases. Chapters explain how lifestyle modification strategies might be different for children, adolescents, older adults, women, and minorities. The book includes detailed instructions for writing wellness plans for patients who have, or are at risk for, certain chronic diseases.
