Viewing the subject of pharmacology from a clinical perspective, Disease Management takes an inclusive approach to patient care, covers lifestyle issues, and the treatment and use of alternative remedies and complementary medicine.

It takes into account the latest changes in clinical guidelines and a new chapter on drug choice and prescribing, including considerations that need to be taken into account. This books considers diseases by system, covering common therapeutic issues. Each section includes:

  • Disease characteristics
  • Clinical features
  • Pharmacology of therapeutics used to manage the condition
  • Treatment guidelines
  • Concurrent disease
  • Interactions
  • Counselling of the patient.

Boasting numerous case studies, self-assessment sections and practice points, Disease Management is an invaluable book for pharmacy undergraduates, pre-registration students, practising pharmacists as well as other healthcare professionals.
