This widely used text uses a case-based approach to help students and professionals master the fundamentals of drug therapeutics.

Readers will learn the basics of common diseases and disorders and develop practical problem-solving skills for devising and implementing successful drug treatment regimens.

Case studies integrated into each chapter illustrate key concepts and principles of therapeutics and give practice in developing evidence-based therapeutic plans.


  • incorporates the latest drug treatments and therapeutic practices and guidelines
  • new chapters cover pharmacogenomics and osteoporosis
  • transplantation is now broken into two chapters to ensure adequate coverage
  • culturally competent care issues are now incorporated into many chapters
  • more than 850 tables provide quick access to comparative drug information, pharmacokinetic properties, treatment options, dosing guidelines, risk factors, and disease and diagnosis information

A companion Website offers the fully searchable text, animations of pathophysiologic concepts, and additional case studies.
