Asthma Case Study

Assignment

Purpose

The purpose of this assignment is to apply the principles of pharmacology to support clinical decisions when prescribing for common acute or chronic diseases. Students will synthesize and apply current knowledge regarding pharmacology to an applied case after exploring the use of a clinical practice guideline to treat asthma.

Course Outcomes

This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes:

· CO 1: Identify the most commonly prescribed agents in the major drug classes. (POs 1, 2)  

· CO 2:  Make appropriate evidence-based therapeutic treatment decisions for individual patients utilizing drugs from the major drug classes. (POs 1, 2) 

· CO 3: Apply knowledge of pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and pharmacogenomics in prescribing patient treatment. (POs 1, 2) 

· CO 4: Distinguish internal and external environment factors affecting drug action, reaction, efficacy, and interaction. (POs 1, 2)  

· CO 5: Identify client indicators of therapeutic, ineffective, adverse responses and side effects to drug therapy. (POs 1, 2)
