Clinical training for undergraduate students often focuses on diagnostic rather than therapeutic skills. Sometimes students are only expected to copy the prescribing
behavior of their clinical teachers, or existing standard treatment guidelines, without explanation as to why certain treatment is chosen. Books may not be much help either.
Pharmacology reference works and formularies are drug-centered, and although clinical textbooks and treatment guidelines are disease-centered and provide treatment recommendations, they rarely discuss why these therapies are chosen. Different sources may give contradictory advice.
This book in primarily intended for under graduate medical students who are about to
enter the clinical phase of their studies. It will provide step by step guidance to the process of rational prescribing together with many illustrative examples. It teaches also skills that are necessary throughout a clinical career. Postgraduate students and practicing doctors may also find it a source of straightforward information.
