PHR 3512 - Independent Study in Applied Clinical Pharmacokinetics

2 Credit Hours
This independent study provides direct experience in how to apply the principles of clinical pharmacokinetics to develop easy-to-use drug dosing aids that pharmacists can use in clinical practice. It involves conducting an in-depth literature search and analysis of articles published on the pharmacokinetics of the drug, clarifying the critical goals of therapy, identifying key mathematical relationships between parameters, and then applying those relationships in the design of an accurate and practical dosing chart. A second component of the course involves writing a paper on the dosing chart to submit for publication in a scholarly journal and verbally presenting the chart to a local hospital pharmacy. The third component entails designing clinical pharmacokinetics problems sets and exercises that can be used to strengthen the pharmacokinetic skills of pharmacists or pharmacy students and enhance their understanding of pharmacokinetic principles.
