Apply pharmacokinetic concepts in order to determine an individualized dosage regimen for a specific patient.
Evaluating and adjusting dosing regimens in a patient care setting.
Explore the pros and cons of clinical practice guidelines and the appropriate application of guidelines in clinical practice.
Calculate clinical pharmacokinetics, including factors that affect the absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and binding of drugs, into the process of monitoring.
Assess clinical findings with number needed to treat (NNT) and number needed to harm (NNH).
On this course, you will learn how to apply the key principles of evidence-based medicine in practice. You will explore the basic applications of p-values, power and statistical tests that are typically found in medical literature. You will discover how to interpret number-needed-to-treat, number-needed-to-harm and noninferiority studies through medical literature examples.
You will also understand and review the pros and cons of clinical practice guidelines and decipher the appropriate application of these guidelines in practice.
This course is for professionals or students looking to build their clinical pharmacokinetic knowledge. You might be an undergraduate pharmacy student, a postgraduate pharmacy student or a pharmacist in clinical practice.
