Disease Management is a comprehensive introduction to the management of diseases which are commonly encountered in primary care.

Pharmacology is considered in the context of clinical practice and a holistic approach is taken to patient care to include lifestyle issues, concurrent disease and treatment, and the use of alternative remedies and complementary medicine.

This textbook considers diseases by system and covers the common therapeutic issues. Numerous case studies and practice points complement the chapters and a new feature of self-assessment sections is included.

Useful summary tables are provided with examples of concurrent diseases to be considered when prescribing or giving advice on the use of alternative remedies.

Each section includes:
  • disease characteristics
  • clinical features
  • pharmacology of therapeutics used to manage the condition
  • treatment guidelines
  • concurrent disease
  • interactions
  • counselling of the patient.

This second edition includes additional chapters on obesity and Parkinson's disease. There is also a new appendix of tables of important clinical measurements and therapeutic drug monitoring.

Disease Management is an invaluable text for pharmacy students, pre-registration graduates, practising pharmacists and other healthcare professionals.
