Clinical Case Studies on Medication Safety provides real and simulated scenarios about safety issues related to medication, including Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs), medication errors, and Drug Related Problems (DRPs). The book explains real-life case management, including details about adverse drug reactions, mistakes during drug administration, drug avoidance, and drug-drug interactions with a goal of improving patient care. With over 150 case studies, including cases from alternative medicine and traditional medicine, this book will help medical and health sciences educators, students, healthcare professionals, and other readers apply their knowledge and skills to solve cases for better patient care.
