Pharmaceutical Public Health is a developing specialty which seeks to influence pharmaceutical health determinants on a population basis, rather than having a focus on the individual patient. However, in the implementation of pharmaceutical public health services it is still important for pharmacists to possess a current knowledge of the clinical management of key disease states. This is one of a series of subjects that review both the clinical management and the pharmaceutical public health issues associated with a range of key disease states. This subject focusses mainly on two health problems that are currently prevalent in the developed world and are becoming increasingly prevalent in the developing world: Cardiovascular Disease and Diabetes. The subject introduces the student to the pharmaceutical public health issues associated with these diseases and some clinical management issues, as well as public health issues related to tobacco smoking and obesity.
