Pharmacy, nursing and medical students and residents often receive limited exposure to pediatric pharmacology during the didactic component of their education. As a result, providing medical care for a pediatric patient can be intimidating to many health care professionals. This publication provides a pharmacological resource to help prepare for such pediatric clinical experiences.
The pharmacotherapy issues that are most likely to be encountered during one's exposure to pediatric medicine are covered in four sections:
-neonatal intensive care
-pediatric intensive care
Application and Review of Pediatric Pharmacotherapy is designed as a self-assessment tool, comprising over 1,000 multiple choice questions, to enhance the reader's knowledge of pediatric pharmacotherapy by allowing application of textbook information to case-based scenarios. Additional cases and corresponding questions are available online at www.fasttrackpharmacy.com.
"The book uses case studies to illustrate different pediatric ailments and their treatments in a variety of care settings. It is comprehensive in its representation of various settings and the pharmacotherapy for different maladies. It is unique in its format of providing questions and answers with explanation...This is a good pharmacotherapy review book for students who may be studying for board exams or wanting a supplemental study guide with comprehensive applied case studies."
