Day 1 – General Principles of Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics
- Understanding the primary pharmacokinetic equations of single dose and multiple administration and practice questions.
- Pharmacodynamics will cover the main signal transduction systems used by drugs and define agonism, antagonism, affinity, potency and efficacy.
Day 2 – Application to Clinical Pharmacology of autonomic and selected cardiovascular medications
- Objectives are to describe the physiopathology of autonomic and cardiovascular systems with respect to drugs affecting them.
- Emphasis on common autonomic side effects of drugs such as antimuscarinic and adrenergic pharmacology will provide links to other classes of medications such as antihistamines and certain drugs of abuse.
Day 3 – CNS Pharmacology with an emphasis on anxiolytics, opioid drugs, and antidepressants
- Review of neuroanatomical and neurochemical pathways controlling mood, movement, eye and pain will give a stronger foundation to CNS pharmacology.
- Concluding with the more complex pharmacology of CNS drugs and their potential for interactions and abuse liability.
