Pharmacoepidemiology: Principles and Practice

Front Cover
Pharmacoepidemiology continues to be a growing area of study in the PharmD pharmacy curriculum. What exactly is pharmacoepidemiology? It is the study of the nature and extent of drug taking behaviours. With its basis in epidemiology, it measures source diffusion, and use of drugs in population. This discipline is currently focusing on pharmaceutical care outcomes and the identification of potential or real drug use problems. Adapted from the author's self-paced learning modules at MCP, this title is designed to aid the practising pharmacist or pharmacy student in developing and using concepts and methods for assessing the nature and extent of these drug taking behaviours.
