About this course
Medical drug therapy is a constant balance between the benefits and harms. This is often a difficult balance to predict, to identify and also to manage. Many people are presenting with symptoms that are not easy to recognise as being caused by medications but which must be identified for good patient care.
The number of people taking medications, especially multiple medications, has increased considerably at least partly due to our ageing population. This is making adverse drug reactions much more prevalent and more challenging. As natural healthcare providers, we must be constantly aware that the medications our patients are taking could be a contributor to their clinical presentation and we must know how to identify them. Jeff Novak PhD has presented the Pharmacology Masterclass for HmLIVE and returns to help us identify when our patients’ medications are causing them problems.
This Masterclass covers the major drug classes and dives deep on the possible adverse responses and drug-drug interactions that can arise and importantly, how to identify these clearly. A great working knowledge of the adverse effects of medications and their interactions is essential for us to provide high-quality natural patient care.
