CSB601 Introduction to Clinical Therapeutics for Health

Health practitioners play a variety of roles in relation to drug therapy for improved health outcomes in patients. Depending on your scope of practice, you might prescribe, dispense, administer or review and evaluate the effects of medications on patients in your care. In order to assume these roles and responsibilities consistent with clinical, professional, organisational and legislative requirements, knowledge of the pharmacology, clinical therapeutics and the principles of Quality Use of Medicines (QUM) must inform the health practitioner's medication decision-making. This unit forms a foundation for further clinical practice and will draw upon and expand your knowledge of body systems, physiology and disease processes that was taught in previous units.
