Drug Delivery Systems in Pharmaceutical Care
It is important to make therapeutics a critical component of teaching about dosage forms and to make dosage forms and drug delivery systems an integral part of therapeutics. This book will be the first to focus on the therapeutic impact of drug dosage forms.Tying together concepts of traditional pharmaceutics with therapeutics, "Drug Delivery Systems" "in Pharmaceutical Care" demonstrates how the modern clinical pharmacist can integrate knowledge in pharmaceutical sciences and therapeutics with appreciation of patient needs and nuances to advise on preferable and optimal product choices.Each chapter represents a collaboration of a clinical pharmacist practitioner and a pharmaceutical scientist. This unique perspective takes the science of dosage form design and helps translate the theory into the pragmatic.Special Features: Case studies and problems to help students get a better understanding of concepts Well-organized chapters with outlines and objectives Summary tables and helpful figures, along with reasonable compilations of original references Final sections with Learning Points that reinforce essential material. Foreword by William J. Jusko, PhD, Professor and Chair, University of Buffalo, Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences"
