Course objectives
The aim of the course is to understand the basic principles of drug dose adjustment in renal and hepatic insufficiency, the course also focuses on the clinical pharmacology of selected groups of drugs, and emphasis will be placed on working with drug information, reasonable pharmacotherapy, applied kinetics and management of drug interactions. A separate topic is how to ensure the safety of pharmacotherapy. The course is delivered as so-called team-based learning (TBL) lessons in which virtual patients will be discussed. Pre-class reading (script chapters) and video lectures are used to prepare for TBL.
