Pharmacokinetics is the study of the process of drug absorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination. The aim of applying pharmacokinetic principles is to individualise the dose of drug, and optimise the outcome achieved in each patient.
Its application reduces the chance of under-treatment, inadvertent poisoning and dose related adverse effects.
