Understanding Pharmacology for Health Professionals simplifies the vast world of drugs and pharmaceuticals. It groups drug categories by therapeutic effects and the disease they're used to treat. The text streamlines drug data through an A-Z Drug Reference along with other resources. Word part and meaning boxes will deepen your understanding of medical terminology, while critical-thinking exercises will help gauge your comprehension.
The fully updated 6th Edition has been condensed into a 15-chapter text. This better accommodates a 16-week semester schedule and lets you focus on just one chapter per week. New “see-and-say” drug pronunciations, word part and meaning boxes, and enhanced activities will help you retain the material.
