This course in 14 hours of recorded lectures will present the primary drug classes and the physiologic basis of their action. Drugs will be grouped according to their general effects and the type of disorders they are routinely used to treat. Special emphasis will be placed on drugs that are commonly used to treat people receiving physical therapy. This course will likewise address how drug therapy interacts with physical therapy, and how drugs can exert beneficial effects as well as adverse side effects that impact on rehabilitation.
In addition the course includes these add-ons: gastrointestinal drugs, drug treatments for infection, and complimentary or alternative medicines, that are not available in the specialized pharmacological courses. Overall you will save 15% by taking the bundled course!
