Learn How to Apply the Principles of Pharmacotherapy to Real-World Clinical Practice!

Pharmacotherapy Casebook sharpens the problem-solving and clinical decision-making skills you need to identify and resolve commonly encountered drug problems. This new edition is packed with more than 150 patient cases -- almost all of them new or revised -- and makes the perfect study companion to the seventh edition of DiPiro's Pharmacotherapy: A Pathophysiologic Approach.

Everything you need to develop expertise in pharmacotherapy decision making:

  • Realistic patient presentations include medical history, physical examination, and laboratory data, followed by a series of questions using a systematic, problem-solving approach
  • Compelling range of cases -- from the uncomplicated (a single disease state) to the complex (multiple disease states and drug-related problems)
  • Diverse authorship, with cases provided by 180 clinicians from 94 institutions
  • Casebook sections conveniently categorized by body organ system to correspond with the DiPiro's Pharmacotherapy textbook
  • Coverage that integrates the biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences with therapeutics
  • Appendix containing valuable information on pharmacy abbreviations, laboratory texts, mathematical conversion factors, anthropometrics, and sample responses to case questions
