Pharmacodynamics and kinetics will be emphasized as well as the effects of psychosocial issues and polypharmacy on drug regimens. Focus is on a comprehensive knowledge of evidence based drug regimens for the purpose of prescribing, monitoring, and educating patients, families, and caregivers about the effects of drug therapy on health and
