    DESCRIERE:


    Instrument util pentru luarea deciziilor terapeutice adecvate

    Realizat intr-un format usor de utilizat, Manualul de Farmaco­terapie, Editia a zecea este un ghid util atat pentru profesionistii din farmacii, laboratoare, clinici, cat si pentru medicii, studentii si rezidentii din domeniu.

    Pentru ca farmacistul sa devina un furnizor de servicii de asistența de sanatate, este necesara dez­voltarea competențelor, in cadrul pregatirii postuniversitare, atat prin rezidentiat si prin programe de educatie continua, cat si prin studiu individual. Accesul la surse de informare obiective este esential pentru o educatie de calitate, iar Manualul de Farmacoterapie poate fi un real sprijin in procesul de formare continua.

    Ghidul ofera informatia esențiala pentru peste 140 de boli si afectiuni intalnite cel mai frecvent in practica clinica. Informatiile sunt prezentate sub forma de text, tabele, figuri sau algoritmi de tratament, totul pentru a facilita utilizarea si ințelegerea acestora.

     

    Fiecare capitol este organizat intr‑o maniera similara, consecventa:

                 • Definirea starii de boala

                 • Prezentarea concisa a elementelor de fiziopatologie relevante

                 • Tablou clinic

                 • Diagnostic

                 • Tratament

                 • Evaluarea rezultatelor terapiei

                  

    Reactiile alergice si alte tulburari induse de medicamente, cum sunt cele hematologice, hepatice, pulmonare si renale sunt prezentate sub forma tabelara, in cinci anexe: Alergia la medicamente, Afectare hematologica indusă de medicamente, Afectare hepatica indusa de medicamente, Afectare pulmonara indusa de medicamente si Afectare renala indusa de medicamente. O alta anexa, de asemenea in format tabelar, include informatii privind managementul farmaco­terapiei la varstnici.

     

    Traducerea si ingrijirea materialului a fost realizata de o echipa de 70 de profesionisti din domeniul farmaceutic, care include cadre didactice ale facultatilor de farmacie din tara (UMF Cluj, UMF Iasi, UMF Bucuresti), far­macisti specialisti in specialitatea farmacie clinica, medici si farmacisti rezidenti.

    Description:

    From reviews of the previous edition:

    ‘This new edition of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics was really very helpful when I was doing an MSc course in Advancing Pharmacy Practice and it was really very helpful in all the clinical diseases I have to read for my PBL. I also used it as one of my most reliable reference books for the in-course simulation ward rounds and other clinical case studies. It is a great book to have as a practising clinical or hospital pharmacist or even community pharmacist. It will also be of great use to anyone doing a course in pharmacotherapy. This book will always be of use to you throughout your studentship or when practising after graduation. It is also more portable than most other pharmacotherapy textbooks with the same amount of information.’

    Now in its sixth edition, this best-selling, multi-disciplinary textbook continues to draw on the skills of pharmacists, clinicians and nurses to present optimal drug regimens. The authors integrate an understanding of the disease processes with an appreciation of the pathophysiological processes, clinical pharmacy and the evidence base. Each chapter is co-written by a pharmacist and a clinician, and each chapter begins with key points and ends with cases to test understanding. The sixth edition is now on StudentConsult for the first time, giving online access to the full text.

    • Key points boxes at the beginning of each chapter
    • Case-study boxes throughout the chapters

    Description:

    ‘The very last thing a drug regulator wishes to be able to say is, like Lord Byron (1788-1824), on the publication of his poem Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, ‘I awoke one morning and found myself famous.’

    The twelfth edition of this long-established textbook of clinical pharmacology (first published in 1960) continues its fine tradition of balancing science and practice for improved evidence-based drug therapy and good prescribing in therapeutic settings increasingly complicated by intercurrent disease and polypharmacy.

    Features:

    Coverage of all major therapeutic topics by body system.

    Prescribing for children is a particularly challenging discipline due to specific issues of drug absorption, metabolism, distribution and excretion. The aim of this book is to improve understanding in all aspects of paediatric prescribing, from the development of suitable drugs through to their practical administration. With its origins in the EU-funded Global Research in Paediatrics (GRiP) project this is the first truly international textbook to provide guidance on the principles behind optimal neonatal and paediatric prescribing. Harnessing the international expertise of paediatricians and pharmacists in the field, Prescribing Medicines for Children compliments the British National Formulary for Children (BNFC), facilitating translation of essential pharmacological principles into good prescribing practice. It incorporates specific information on how to promote safe and effective prescribing in paediatrics, including how to avoid medication errors and adverse drug reactions in children. Highlights include the differences in prescribing habits between countries and the shared principles that underpin rational prescribing in paediatrics and neonatology. The book is divided into two sections: Section A provides concise educational material relating to paediatric pharmacology and optimising how medicines are developed and prescribed for children. Section B considers key clinical prescribing areas and can be used as a quick reference guide. Each chapter is focused on the key issues in prescribing for a respective clinical specialty or context. Prescribing Medicines for Children is essential reading for all those who are involved in prescribing medicines to neonates and children. This includes undergraduate and postgraduate pharmacists, nurses, paediatricians and primary care physicians, academic scientists, and those working in the pharmaceutical industry and drug regulation.
