Now in its fifth edition, this best-selling, multidisciplinary textbook continues to draw on the skills of pharmacists and clinicians to present optimal drug regimens. The authors integrate an understanding of the disease processes with an appreciation of pathophysiological processes, clinical pharmacy and the evidence base. This title places stronger emphasis on understanding both the prescribing process and the clinical pharmacy process. All chapters are completely revised and updated. It includes thirty-eight leading new authors. It features: key points boxes at the beginning of every chapter; case study tests at the end of every chapter; chapters co-authored by pharmacists and clinicians; organised by body system; and, consistent, clearly signposted chapter layout. "...a unique and valuable support for all those involved or interested in drug therapy. This is a textbook that no university or pharmacy department, particularly those with employees studying at any level, and no pharmacist trying to develop their knowledge base should be without." (Dr Chris Green and John Sexton, "The Pharmaceutical Journal").
