Basic Skills in Interpreting Laboratory Data continues to be the most popular teaching text on laboratory data for pharmacy students as well as the go-to reference for pharmacists in therapeutic practice. Now in its seventh edition, Basic Skills has been expanded and updated to cover new drugs, research, and therapeutic approaches.
The Indispensable Guide to Interpreting Clinical Laboratory Data
Basic Skills in Interpreting Laboratory Data is a comprehensive, in-depth guide to all aspects of lab work that apply to clinical practice. Written by established clinicians and pharmacy faculty members and reviewed by additional experts, it is designed to make all information clear and quickly accessible. Minicases provide clinical scenarios for using tests and managing patients, and quickview charts throughout offer clear interpretations of lab results.
New to this edition:
Complex but critical skills are required for clinical pharmacists to effectively use lab data in screening for or diagnosing diseases and in monitoring the safety and effectiveness of treatment. As the only book of its kind specifically written for pharmacists by pharmacists, Basic Skills makes it easier to make accurate and critical decisions based on laboratory data.
