About the course
Drug metabolism exerts a powerful influence on drug action - from complete failure of a drug's effectiveness to life-threatening toxicity. This course focuses on the aims, responses and processes of human drug biotransformation systems. As a result, it will assist healthcare professionals - particularly new prescribers (e.g. nurses, podiatrists or optometrists) to develop their drug therapy practices.
Delivered by Prof Michael Coleman
, toxicology specialist.
The course covers:
- Human biotransformation and the therapeutic window
- Responses of Biotransformational systems to drug pressure
- Factors affecting biotransformation
- Biotransformation and drug toxicity
