PHARMACY PRACTICE AND THERAPEUTICS A (CARDIOVASCULAR AND RESPIRATORY)

PHA2THA

2020

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 cardiovascular and respiratory 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.

Graduate Capabilities

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Describe and explain the pharmacology of drugs for cardiovascular and respiratory disorders, specifically the actions at the cellular and organ levels, and clinical effect on the patient.
02. Relate cardiovascular and respiratory drugs to activity at the molecular level, specifically, effect on relevant receptors and other regulatory molecules and processes.
03. Describe and explain the relationship between drug actions and therapeutic outcomes, specifically in the amelioration of cardiovascular and respiratory clinical conditions.
04. Describe the absorption, elimination and metabolism of cardiovascular and respiratory drugs and relate this to clinical practice and how pharmacogenetics affects this.
05. Anticipate and rationalize interaction between drugs (including over-the-counter (OTC drugs).
06. Follow guidelines to critically assess drug use and disease states in clinical scenarios
07. Relate the movement of medicinal drugs within hospital departments to their intended clinical usage.
