This course addresses basic pharmacology concepts including drug nomenclature and how the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates and approves drugs in the USA. Implications of FDA guidelines for rehabilitation specialists will also be discussed. Pharmacokinetic concepts will then be addressed, including methods of drug administration, absorption, distribution, storage, and elimination. This content area concludes with a discussion of how specific factors can alter pharmacokinetic variables, and how altered drug disposition can have an impact on patients receiving physical rehabilitation.
