Preface of book: “Pharmacotherapy: A Pathophysiologic Approach. This edition of the casebook contains 157 unique patient cases, with case chapters organized into organ system sections corresponding to those of the Pharmacotherapy textbook.
Students should read the relevant textbook chapter to become thoroughly familiar with the pathophysiology and pharmacotherapy of each disease state before attempting to make “decisions” about the care of patients described in this casebook.
The Pharmacotherapy textbook, casebook, and other useful learning resources are also available on AccessPharmacy.com (subscription required).
By using these realistic cases to practice creating, defending, and implementing pharmacotherapeutic care plans, students can begin to develop the skills and self-confidence that will be necessary to make the real decisions required in professional practice”
