The book Principles of Pharmacology Workbook is written by M.D. Farrell, Susan E., M.D. Golan, David E. This case-based workbook is written as a companion to the second edition of Principles of Pharmacology: The Pathophysiologic Basis of Drug Therapy, edited by David E. Golan, Armen H. Tashj ian, Jr., Ehrin J. Armstrong, and April W. Armstrong. In accordance with the philosophy of the text, the workbook contains clinical cases, questions, and explanations intended to promote the learning of pharmacology within the framework of human physiology, biochemistry, and pathophysiology. The Principles of Pharmacology Workbook consists of 54 chapters, which correspond to the chapters in the main text. Each chapter of the workbook is anchored with bulleted learning objectives, followed by two case scenarios, the first identical to the one presented in the main text. Each clinical case is accompanied by five multiple-choice questions with extensive explanatory answers and figures from the textbook. More than 110 cases and 550 multiple-choice questions and answers are incorporated into the content of the workbook.
The workbook uses clinical examples to convey important therapeutic and adverse drug effects, understood in the context of a drug’s mechanism of action. The format is intentionally designed to promote a mechanism-based understanding of pharmacology, with attention to clinical relevance. As such, one of the goals of the workbook is to facilitate a deeper understanding of the mechanistic basis of drug therapy in clinical medicine, rather than memorizing drug lists. A second goal is to facilitate pharmacology review by students for Board exams.
