Doody Core Title:
Continually revised and updated for over 40 years, Applied Therapeutics: The Clinical Use of Drugs is the gold standard for patient-centered drug therapeutics. With its acclaimed case-based approach, the Eleventh Edition promotes mastery and application of the fundamentals of drug therapeutics. Featuring contributions from more than 200 experienced clinicians, every chapter has been revised and updated to reflect our ever-changing knowledge of drugs and the application of this knowledge to the individualized therapy of patients. As you progress from the General Principles section to chapters on specific diseases, you will benefit from practical problem-solving techniques that help you devise effective evidence-based drug treatment plans.
Given the evolving educational needs of students, this edition has been thoughtfully revised to align with the five Institute of Medicine (IOM) core competencies (patient-centered care, interdisciplinary teams, evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and informatics), as well as current pharmacy educational outcomes and the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX) competency statements. These strategies ensure relevance to contemporary pharmacy and preparation for pharmacy practice.
