PHARMACY PRACTICE AND THERAPEUTICS B (METABOLIC AND ENDOCRINE)

PHA3THB

2014

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject will integrate the teaching of pharmacology, medicinal chemistry and pharmacy practice relating to the use of drugs for gastroenterology and endocrine disorders. Students will initially explore the mechanism of action of these drugs, specifically how they affect biochemical and physiological processes at the cellular and organ level, and then relate this to the overall clinical effect on the individual. The medicinal chemistry of these drugs will then be explored so that structure-function relationships can be determined at the molecular level. Finally, the pharmacy practice issues relating to these conditions and medications will be addressed, in a manner that highlights how these drugs can ameliorate the various disease states, and affect the overall clinical condition of the patient.
