The mathematical equations required for drug dosing can be intimidating. Concepts in Clinical Pharmacokinetics breaks the equations down to their simplest forms and uses a step-by-step approach to explain the "how to" of the discipline. This promotes a greater comprehension of the subject matter, allowing easier adaption of concepts to specific drug dosing situations.

Based on the bestselling textbook of the same title — Concepts in Clinical Pharmacokinetics, 6th Edition, presented by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists — the course is rich in multimedia elements that expand on the text and stimulate learning. The intense, independent, self-study course brings to life the realities and nuances of clinical pharmacokinetics. The course's clinical correlates will help you link fundamental kinetic models to specific applications. The clinical correlates highlight either a mathematical or clinical point, helping you avoid making simple mistakes. Technical Requirements: PC and MAC.
