Unfortunately, this item is not available in your country.
This book is for Pharmacology courses offered in Pharmacy Technician and Pharmacy Assisting programs in Canada.
Pharmacology is one of the most challenging subjects for those embarking on careers as pharmacy technicians. By its very nature, pharmacology is and interdisciplinary subject, borrowing concepts from a wide variety of natural and applied sciences, including anatomy, physiology, chemistry, psychology, psychology and sociology.
This text presents pharmacology from an interdisciplinary perspective. The text draws upon core concepts of anatomy, physiology, and pathology to make drug therapy understandable. It does not assume that the student comes to the course with a strong background in the natural or applied sciences. The prerequisite science knowledge necessary for understanding drug therapy is reviewed in each chapter that presents the core concepts in pharmacology.
Drug therapy differs between the United States and Canada and Canadian pharmacy technician instructors have needed to supplement American textbooks with their own materials. To address this need, the authors created this pharmacology textbook for the Canadian market.
