PHARMACY PRACTICE AND THERAPEUTICS B (METABOLIC AND ENDOCRINE)

PHA3THB

2021

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, hepatic, reproductive 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.

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Explain the pathophysiology for a selection of disease states associated with the endocrine system, reproductive system and body metabolism.
02. Relate the relevant class of 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 disease states associated with the endocrine system or body metabolism.
04. Describe the absorption, elimination and metabolism of endocrine and gastrointestinal drugs and relate this to clinical practice and how pharmacogenetics affects this.
05. Anticipate and rationalize interaction between drugs(including over-the-counter (OTC and other substances)
06. Follow guidelines to critically assess drug use and disease states in a defined case study scenario.
