Samenvatting

2014 BMA Medical Book Awards Highly Commended in Medicine category!

The fourth edition of Medical Pharmacology and Therapeutics provides a complete basis for learning about safe and effective prescribing of modern medicines. It offers all the pharmacology medical students will need - from basic science pharmacology and pathophysiology, through to clinical pharmacology and therapeutics, in line with today's integrated curricula. The disease-based approach and clear presentation of how drugs are used in clinical practice sets it apart from other texts and helps make it such an invaluable guide for all health professionals from the start of their course until after they have qualified.

This new edition has been extensively revised and updated throughout. Key features include:

? Succinct explanations of the major pathogenic mechanisms of each disease and consequent clinical signs and symptoms

? Comprehensive reviews of major drug classes relevant to each disease

? A structured approach to the principles of disease management - outlining core principles of drug choice and planning a therapeutic regimen for common diseases

? Quick-reference drug compendia, which illustrate key similarities and differences among drugs in each class

? New sections on key and evolving topics, including headache and drug treatment in palliative care

? Re-worked art programme to further clarify complex areas

? Fully revised self-assessment questions and case-based exercises - to test understanding and aid revision

  • Tabular presentation of all common drugs within each class
  • Section on further reading

Recensie(s)

Overall, the strengths of this text include its organisation and position of pharmacological information in a clinical context, its accessible language and engaging format ... A succinct yet broad scope of topics enhances the desirability of this text to those who design and deliver an integrated curriculum, and also to the student who wishes to learn what is typically regarded as a difficult, but most essential topic, in a relevant and approachable way. 2018?BMA Awards: Highly Commended, Medicine ? From reviews of the previous edition: 'As a medical student, I had previously studied Pharmacology . with a book that made me hate Pharmacology! Most people who, like I did, have read that book, will agree that another Pharmacology textbook would be better to use later to review some subjects (it is amazing how Pharmacology vanishes so swiftly from our heads!). I quickly found this one. A quick glance at the table of contents and I immediately understood I wanted to purchase it. It did not take long for me to notice this was the best choice I could have made. Waller's Medical Pharmacology and Therapeutics offers a broad covering, with straight-to-the-point explanations. It never goes into unnecessary detail, although sometimes a little more detail would be desirable (for example, more information on drug interactions).Summing it up, in comparison, Waller's has a broader coverage, less detail, clearer writing and is a better source for a quick review. Remember that I hated Pharmacology before? Well, I ended up loving it - such is the difference a good textbook makes.'

    prettige leesbaar handboek waarin de belangrijkste farmacologische mechanismen en geneesmiddelen per tractus in een notedop worden uitgelegd. Duidelijke graphics. Met het wegvallen van het farmacotherapeutisch kompas als handboek is dit een mooi alternatief.
