I can’t thank you all enough for the support and as always I like to provide some free resources (in addition to the blog and podcast) along the way! I’ve just recently released a free pharmacology course on Udemy.com.
The general overview of the course is on pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics. I focused primarily on common things that you see in clinical practice. I’ve shared a lot of common examples that I’ve personally seen. The entire course is about 90 minutes.
The free pharmacology course would be a great refresher for anyone looking to brush up on some of the basics when it comes to clinical pharmacology.
This video course is a review of numerous pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic principles that may affect patient care. I focused on the most common terminology that have an impact on the clinical care of patients. Pharmacodynamic terms and examples include agonists, antagonists, mechanism of action, and receptor selectivity. Pharmacokinetic terms and examples include; half-life, absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination. As a bonus, I’ve included some basics on physiological changes in the elderly that may affect the way medications interact with the body.
You’ll also get the PDF slides to go with the presentation as a free download!
In addition to my fellow pharmacist friends and pharmacy students, other healthcare professionals that might benefit from this education include
- Nursing students
- Medical students
- Physician Assistants and students
- Nurse Practitioners and students
- Physical Therapists
- Pharmacy Technicians
- Any one else who needs to learn pharmacology!
As a bonus, I also included a quick overview of physiological changes in the elderly and how those changes may impact medication response.
Go check out the free pharmacology course and if you feel it is useful, the only thing I would ask for is a kind rating and review!
