Eiland and Diane B. The objective of preparing students for practical, real-life scenarios, beginning with the licensure exam, to help them become successful, competent practitioners is important.
Many of the authors and editors are seasoned pharmacy academicians. It also includes sections on pharmacy law, compounding, and calculations. The organization of the book into alphabetized sections based on disease state enables readers to easily locate areas of interest or weakness.
The cases are written in such a way that readers can easily follow the progression of the disease and the patient's status. One section covers test-taking skills, again appropriately geared towards preparation for the licensure exam. The answer section displays the correct answer as well why the other choices are incorrect, but it would be easier to use if it was located after each case rather than in the back of the book.
The abbreviations appendix also is helpful. This edition contains additional cases, updated law information, and relevant revisions. Format: In addition to the study guide, "PharmPrep "is available as an interactive online product that allowsthe student to review sample questions, diseasestates, and actual patient cases.
Practicing pharmacists and other providers may also find the case-based format conducive for reviewing the contemporary pharmacotherapy of commonly encountered diseases. These real-world scenarios are likely to be encountered in today s practice environments. Content: Patient cases are grouped under 22 major disease state sections. For example, the hypertension and stroke cases are listed under the Cardiac and Vascular Diseases section.
The federal law review is written in descriptive form comprising 24 major headings, including common abbreviations, descriptions of various acts including the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of , controlled substances laws, and privacy issues eg, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Thirty multiple-choice questions follow the law review and their answers can be found in a separate section of the book.
The compounding section of the book is divided into solid dosage forms, pharmaceutical liquids, topical delivery systems, suppositories, and parenteral delivery systems.
A synopsis of concepts and practical information including study questions is presented in the basic pharmaceutical calculations section. Usability: The book is user friendly and all sections are easy to navigate, despite the lack of an appendix.
Ten multiple-choice questions follow each case. In a separate section, the correct answers to the questions linked to a specific competency statement are explained, along with a brief discussion of why the distracter answers are incorrect.
Limitations: A lack of reference citations makes it difficult to assess information currency. Whereas many common diseases are included as cases, there are some obvious oversights. For example, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and thyroid disorders have been overlooked.
Comparison with Previous Editions: Major revised sections include reviews of federal law, compounding, and pharmacy calculations.
The Successful Test-Taking Strategies chapter also remains in this latest version of the book. Singling out one product or service as the major competition to "PharmPrep"is impractical. Hence, individuals can now choose from a diverse product portfolio tailored totheir individual learning needs and financial limitations. Actual cases and their respective test items provide an opportunity to challenge one s clinical proficiencies concerning patient assessment and disease state management.
Provision of disease states found on the exam along with a testing format similar to the exam are added benefits. Despite these positive attributes, shortcomings include a lack of reference citations and exclusion of some common diseases. However, given its overall functionality and modest yet competitive pricing, "PharmPrep "should be a welcome addition to the bookshelves of students and practitioners alike. The authors have used real patient cases to emphasise that patients seen in practice rarely present in a textbook manner.
The online edition and the book are organised by therapeutic areas and then tailored into more specific disease states. There are different disease management areas, with approximately two cases per topic, making a total of individual cases. The book includes 77 of these cases. Disease management areas include cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal hepatic and pancreatic, rheumatic, neurological, neoplastic, urological, geriatric and many others.
New diseases states such as cystic fibrosis, lung transplantation, conjunctivitis and rosacea have been added to this edition. Each case is presented as a medical chart and includes 10 multiple choice questions. These questions and answers represent information that the practitioners have taken from their own clinical experiences.
The authors have been careful to recommend therapies that reflect current standards and treatment guidelines, although there may be more than one correct way of treatment.
Unfortunately, for UK readers, patients weights are calculated in pounds and heights in feet and inches. Apart from these minor irritations, the cases are well put together. The final chapters cover federal law, compounding, calculations and abbreviations.
Some of the examples used are not relevant to the UK but others may be used by pharmacists for teaching purposes. Whether used in the book or online format, the cases on offer will help students and preregistration trainees with their preparations for examinations or practising pharmacists with their continuing professional development or teaching activities.
