This textbook provides a concise and thorough introduction to clinical appraisal pharmacology from which students can gain a rapid understanding of individual topics within the discipline, and from which they can review and revise certain topics before exams. This is achieved through self-contained topics, with concise text on the left and a diagram on the right to elaborate and reinforce the text. The text has a strong clinical focus and, in the main, sections will relate to particular body systems or the therapy of a disease-class (eg, cancer). Pharmacological principles and mechanisms are covered, but the main focus is on the therapeutic use of the drugs. Sections will cover basic principles of pharmacology, specialized pharmacology, complementary pharmacology, and the vitamins. The text will be written primarily for pharmacy students, but will also be of interest to clinical medical students. The strong clinical focus should also appeal to practitioners.
