CSA322 Therapeutics in Practice 3A builds upon your existing knowledge of physiology and pharmacology, microbiology and evidence-based health to develop the clinical knowledge and skills necessary to deliver pharmaceutical care. Topics include the pathophysiology and therapeutics principles used in the management of common diseases. These include cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, and endocrine conditions. An emphasis is placed on the application of knowledge to evaluate and advise upon pharmacotherapy in clinical situations. Skills will be developed for application in the practice setting, including clinical pharmacy skills, pharmaceutical care, patient monitoring (including review of laboratory data) and identification and resolution of drug related problems. Teaching activities will include lectures and tutorials with case studies.
