Book Description :

Today, more than ever, the pharmacist is a full-member of the health team and many of the pharmacist’s patients are using a host of other devices from various specialty areas of medicine and surgery. Medical Devices for Pharmacy and Other Healthcare Professions presents a comprehensive review of most devices that pharmacists and pharmacy personnel encounter during practice. The devices covered are relevant to pharmacists working in various work settings from hospitals, community pharmacies, and health insurance sector, to regulatory bodies, academia, and research institutes. Even if a pharmacist does not come across each of these devices on a regular basis, the book is a valuable reference source for those occasions when information is needed by a practitioner, and for instructing interns and residents. The book discusses devices needed for special pharmaceutical services and purposes such as residential care homes and primary care based with GPs, pharmacy-based smoking cessation services, pharmacy-based anticoagulant services, pain management and terminal care, medication adherence and automation in hospital pharmacy. Additional features include: Provides information on devices regarding theory, indications, and procedures concerning use, cautions, and place, in therapy. Assists pharmacists in understanding medical devices and instructing patients with the use of these devices. Focuses on providing the available evidence on effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of devices and the latest information in the particular field. Other healthcare providers interested in medical devices or involved in patients care where medical devices represent part of the provided care would benefit from the book.

Book Description :

This book comprehensively presents all the necessary information health professionals need to become Certified Asthma Educators. Competent asthma educators must possess a number of skills: they must have appropriate and sound medical and pharmaceutical knowledge; be proficient and effective educators who can influence their patients’ behaviors for the better; and, finally, they need the administrative and organizational skills needed to set up and run efficient clinics at their places of work. The book is divided into three sections to meet those needs: Asthma: The Fundamentals; The Role of Education; and, The Effective Asthma Educator. The first section covers clinical knowledge of asthma, with chapters including lung structure and function, clinical presentation of asthma, and environmental issues in asthma management. The second section delves into the role of educating patients and teaches readers how to best do that with an integrated approach between physician, educator, and patient. The third section looks further into educating techniques with a view of the learning process, considerations for instruction locations, and the role the educator plays overall. The final chapter in the book presents example cases for readers to assess the knowledge they have learned throughout. This second edition serves as both textbook and study guide for certification as well as a long-term reference publication. It has been fully updated from the previous edition with the latest treatment guidelines, medications, and disease monitoring methods. This is an ideal guide for asthma educators, those seeking NAECB certification, and any health professional involved with individuals who have asthma.

Book Description :

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a multi-component condition that results in increasingly limited airflow, usually associated with an abnormal inflammatory response of the lung. It constitutes a major public health burden worldwide, while only very few effective therapies are available. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the development of Onbrez Breezhaler, a newly approved once-daily inhaled β2 agonist for the treatment of COPD. It reviews the current pharmacotherapy for COPD and discusses topics such as the chemical design and the pre-clinical pharmacology of the molecule, the early clinical development, the INHANCE study (which provides a successful example of the use of an adaptive design in the confirmatory setting) and the Phase III clinical efficacy study, as well as the history and performance of the Breezhaler device. Finally, a list of emerging targets is included that could well offer future treatment options for COPD.

‘This new edition of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics was really very helpful when I was doing an MSc course in Advancing Pharmacy Practice and it was really very helpful in all the clinical diseases I have to read for my PBL. I also used it as one of my most reliable reference books for the in-course simulation ward rounds and other clinical case studies. It is a great book to have as a practising clinical or hospital pharmacist or even community pharmacist. It will also be of great use to anyone doing a course in pharmacotherapy. This book will always be of use to you throughout your studentship or when practising after graduation. It is also more portable than most other pharmacotherapy textbooks with the same amount of information.’ Now in its sixth edition, this best-selling, multi-disciplinary textbook continues to draw on the skills of pharmacists, clinicians and nurses to present optimal drug regimens. The authors integrate an understanding of the disease processes with an appreciation of the pathophysiological processes, clinical pharmacy and the evidence base.

Book Description :

Until recently COPD was largely neglected by health professionals and viewed as the Cinderella of respiratory conditions. Many patients were seen as heart-sink cases with a self-inflicted disease. But views are now changing and COPD, like other chronic conditions managed within primary care, has taken on a higher profile within the Government and NHS agenda. This book reflects that change. It looks at the treatment of COPD in primary care: in the GP surgery, in outpatient clinics, and through district and community nursing. COPD management does not depend on purely medical intervention; much can be done to help these patients from a psychological, social and holistic perspective to cope with their everyday activities. Patients lead a frightening existence, struggling to breathe and to cope with their symptoms. The book helps nurses and other healthcare professionals to support these patients.

Book Description :

This text addresses the need for a practical handbook on asthma and allergy in adolescents and young adults, which constitutes an interesting and challenging age group. Asthma may diminish in intensity with age but is still an ongoing concern. In addition, compliance with management is not generally successful, with the risk that, the failure to treat it adequately could lead to long-term sequelae (namely, COPD). Finally, obesity and sedentarism in young adults and adolescents can worsen asthma on the one hand, while some can be athletes on the other hand. This ready reckoner aims to help in understanding clinical allergy, which is imperative for every physician who is caring for patients with asthma given its high prevalence and heterogeneous treatment options. KEY FEATURES Covers allergic diseases in general and asthma in detail, and provides comprehensive coverage of clinical features, diagnosis and management, using a case-based approach Creates awareness of the fundamentals of clinical allergy, helping physicians make wise choices in medical and surgical management, especially in resource-limited settings Features insight from international authors with clinical experience in the diagnosis and treatment of asthma in the specific age group of adolescents and young adults
