The goal of Pharmacology is to understand how different pharmacotherapeutic agents play a role in treating diseases from an integrated physiological pharmacological perspective. In addition, we examine how these therapeutic concepts are applied to patient care, where we address the role of nurses in developing a comprehensive approach to the clinical application of drug therapy by implementing the nursing process. Since personalized medicine is an emerging area of medical practice, emphasis will be given on the principles of pharmacogenomics and pharmacokinetics. Finally, focus will be on concepts of safe medical practices through advances in information technology.
