Line Pharmacology

Course
2015-2016

Beschrijving

The purpose of this line course is to introduce basic pharmacological concepts that will help you in determining individualised treatment plans. For this it is important to know what a drug does to a patient (pharmacodynamics) and what happens with a drug in the body of the patient (pharmacokinetics).
Pharmacodynamics describe binding of drugs (to receptors, enzymes, channels, etc.) in order to exert their effects, how these effects occurs, and how they can be regulated. The autonomic nervous system is used as an illustration for this concept, since many drugs affect this system.

Leerdoelen

As a result of this module the student:
1. Can describe how drugs act biologically (pharmacodynamics).
2. Understands mechanisms of a drug action in (patho)physiological context.
