Sally-Anne Francis, Felicity Smith, John Malkinson, Andrew Constanti and Kevin Taylor
Sally-Anne Francis - Honorary Senior Lecturer in the Department of Practice & Policy at UCL School of Pharmacy; Felicity Smith - Professor of Pharmacy Practice at UCL School of Pharmacy; John Malkinson - Senior Lecturer in Pharmaceutical Science Applied to Practice at UCL School of Pharmacy; Andrew Constanti - Reader in Pharmacology at UCL School of Pharmacy; Kevin Taylor - Professor of Clinical Pharmaceutics at UCL School of Pharmacy.
The book includes more than 90 individual case studies based on real-life scenarios, each of which places the patient at the centre of understanding. The case studies have been developed between clinical practitioners and pharmaceutical scientists, ensuring an integrated approach to the topic.
Each case draws on the fundamental aspects of pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmacology, pharmaceutics and therapeutics – giving you practical knowledge of what to expect. They include examples relating to the most recent developments in basic science research, drug development and delivery, and clinical practice.
The featured cases cover all the main conditions (as well as some rarer disorders), guiding and challenging your students with each patient encounter.
