0781773482

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0781773482]

In today’s pharmacy, technicians are increasingly taking on the dispensing functions previously performed by pharmacists. Part of the LWW Pharmacy Technician Education Series, this easy-to-read book prepares technicians for these responsibilities by helping them understand how drugs affect human function.

Focusing on classes of drugs, rather than individual drugs, the book highlights the general principles that apply to all drugs in each class—drug actions, indications, side effects, administration, plus practical information for the pharmacy workplace. Features include Tips for the Technician, case scenarios, and end-of-chapter review questions.

A bound-in CD-ROM and companion Website include chapter quizzes, worksheets, hands-on activities, animations, audio pronunciations, and a searchable online version of the text.

1617373230

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=1617373230]

Well-respected leaders in the field of in vitro neurotoxicology take a fresh look at their own and other’s work, critically and comparatively analyzing it across experimental systems and toxicants, and synthesizing essential principles for in vitro neurotoxicity testing. Neurotoxicants of significance to human health are emphasized, especially those for which metabolism and dose-responses are well well studied both in vivo and in vitro: lead, mercury, organophosphorous insecticides, polychlorinated biphenyls and dioxin, ethanol, and endogenous proteins. The goal is to set out new concepts and research directions that will hasten significant improvement in the methods and systems for in vitro neurotoxicity testing.

Drug Utilization Research: Methods and Applications 1st Edition

1118949781

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=1118949781]

Drug Utilization Research (DUR) is an eclectic scientific discipline, integrating descriptive and analytical methods for the quantification, understanding and evaluation of the processes of prescribing, dispensing and consumption of medicines and for the testing of interventions to enhance the quality of these processes. The discipline is closely related and linked mainly to the broader field of pharmacoepidemiology, but also to health outcomes research, pharmacovigilance and health economics.

Drug Utilization Research is a unique, practical guide to the assessment and evaluation of prescribing practices and to interventions to improve the use of medicines in populations. Edited by an international expert team from the International Society for Pharmacoepidemiology (ISPE), DUR is the only title to cover both the methodology and applications of drug utilization research and covers areas such as health policy, specific populations, therapeutics and adherence.
