Description

The first pharmacology book for physical therapists written by physical therapists and PhD pharmacologists

A Doody’s Core Title for 2011!

Based on the classic Katzung’s Basic and Clinical Pharmacology, this ground-breaking book illuminates the ever-expanding role of pharmacology in rehabilitation practice. In it you’ll find unmatched insights on the full range of pharmacology topics, from drug receptor pharmacodynamics and general anesthetics, to cancer chemotherapy-all told from the vantage point of the authors’ extensive first-hand experience.
