Essentials of Pharmacology & Clinical Lab Tests

$275.00 (USD)
This course complements entry-level education on pharmacology and clinical lab testing. Course material focuses on the clinical application of key pharmacology principles in an outpatient musculoskeletal physical therapy setting. Basic concepts of pharmacokinetics and pharmacotherapeutics are covered, followed by a specific focus on medications commonly prescribed for cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, pain control, and pulmonary disorders. Discussion of these broad categories of drugs will cover clinical application, intended therapeutic effects, and potential adverse affects. This course also provides an overview of a core set of clinical lab tests that physical therapists should understand and should be confident suggesting to medical providers or ordering themselves (based on the physical therapist's practice act or credentials). The clinical lab tests discussed include basic biochemistry, immunology, hematology, & microbiology tests. Note for Orthopaedic and Sports Residents Only: This course is waived for those who are DPT prepared upon entry into the residency program.
