Short description In recent years, it has become increasingly important for HCPs to have a more in-depth knowledge of pharmacology as they prepare to become supplementary prescribers of medicines for patients in their care. Addressing the needs of students who do not have a strong chemistry or biology background, Pharmacology for the Health Care Professions clearly explains the importance of pharmacology while avoiding unnecessary use of chemistry. Numerous relevant case studies taken from real-life situations make this a vital tool for students and health care professionals.
