Home health clinicians encounter all types of medications in their patients’ medicine cabinets and it is important that they are well-grounded in pharmacology. This webinar series will cover the key principles of pharmacology and review medications used to treat common diseases and conditions.

Series participants will learn concepts important to the use of medications in patients including common terminology, the effect of comorbid disease or concomitant medications on therapeutic and toxic effects, and special considerations based on a patient’s age and comorbidities. To introduce pharmacy practice, the session will discuss routes of drug administration and general time to onset of effect, advantages, and disadvantages of various drug information sources, and will provide recommendations on medication history taking and medication reconciliation in the patient’s home.
