Course Overview

This module covers the application of theory, policy and guidelines relevant to the provision of pharmaceutical and patient care services to patients with common cardiovascular diseases (cardiovascular risk assessment, hypertension, acute coronary syndromes), common infections seen across settings and drug handling in hepatic and renal dysfunction. Case studies reflecting practice across sectors will be used. Students are expected to engage in learning within their workplace to inform and improve their autonomous practice and contributions as part of the multidisciplinary team.
