About this Book
Proposed changes in practice legislation will allow podiatrists to prescribe a limited range of drugs and dressings. It is therefore now imperative that students and practitioners understand pharmacology. Not only the mechanisms of action of drugs, but also their potential side-effects and interactions with other drugs taken by the patient.
This book will cover both basic and clinical pharmacology. The podiatrist's role in examination, assessment and diagnosis are considered.
