Excellent Case-Based Approach to Learning

The book really felt like I was shadowing a working professional, seeing what and how he made decisions with medicines. He gives good advice not only on how to handle each scenario, but also how to work interprofessionally with other team members. Sometimes other members will agree, sometimes they won't. The books itself make it so much easier to kind of "get it" when it comes to therapeutics, especially with the larger lists of drugs and multiple interactions. I would highly recommend the narrator and book itself.

Very Practical for HC Professionals

As a recent PharmD. graduate, I found this book very useful! I think other HC professionals will find this book useful as well. A great book to listen to during your commute to work or while cleaning the house.

Valuable for intermediate level pharmacists

This is a great resource for people with long commutes like I have. It’s not like a lot of other study resources that just list items in no particular order and with no context. And it’s not like most other medical audiobooks that are written to be understandable by lay people. It’s right in the middle and gives a lot of professional opinion and clinical pearls from his experience. I got a lot out of it and after having listened to the whole thing 2-3 times I had it all memorized

Great stuff!

The clinical pearls and mnemonics that were spread throughout the book definitely made learning about the drugs easier. It is great how the book is laid out and easy to listen.

More suited to the American market

Although an excellent case based clinical pharmacology audiobook- really not suited to UK based clinicians. There are many differences in drug names so that this gets quite confusing. This is especially the case when you are listening to the audiobook during long journeys into work- it is difficult to then google search what the British name for an American drug is.

Perfect for young MD's, Pharmacists, PAs, and NPs

I loved the drug interactions the most! As a younger pharmacist, it is sometimes difficult to decipher the relevance of a drug interaction. Being able to listen to someone talk through their thought process was really helpful. I would strongly recommend this audiobook to any student or young healthcare professional who is prescribing, dispensing, or helps monitor medication therapy. This book will help me take better care of my patients for sure!
