Clinical Pharmacokinetics 4 CSA414

Hobart

Note:

Introduction

A study of the clinical pharmacokinetics of individual drugs and groups of drugs, sources of inter-patient variability in pharmacokinetics and the application of pharmacokinetics in practice. As with Clinical Pharmacokinetics 3, particular emphasis is placed on the role of the pharmacist in improving the use of drugs through the practical application of pharmacokinetics and therapeutic drug monitoring. There is extensive use of clinically-oriented problems and cases.

Topics include therapeutic drug monitoring; drug interactions; an overview of sources of inter-patient variability in pharmacokinetics (eg extremes of age, renal or hepatic disease, pharmacogenomics); clinical case studies and pharmacokinetics of specific drugs.

Unit objective: to develop the ability to contribute to improved drug use through the appropriate use of pharmacokinetic techniques and therapeutic drug monitoring.
