Back to Package: Understanding Pharmacology + Workbook
With ASHP’s Understanding Pharmacology Package, students and pharmacy technicians will have everything they need to fully master pharmacology and become experienced and proficient practitioners.
Using language and organization aimed directly at pharmacy technicians, Understanding Pharmacology for Pharmacy Technicians, offers more than 700 pages of practical applications, safety issues, and error prevention, and illustrative cases that not only explain “how” but “why.”
Throughout the book, anatomy and physiology are discussed in relation to various disorders and associated pharmacotherapies to give the pharmacy technician students a context for how drugs work. Students using this book will learn the therapeutic effects of prescription medications, nonprescription medications, and alternative therapies commonly used to treat diseases affecting that system, and their adverse effects.
The companion Workbook for Understanding Pharmacology for Pharmacy Technicians contains additional exercises and assessment activities for every chapter. There are more than 1,200 exercises that can be used by individual students and pharmacy technicians for self assessment in conjunction with the Understanding Pharmacology, or used in class by instructors for extra practice and activities.
