Credit points: 03
Year: 2018
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: College of Medicine & Dentistry

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 pharmacuetical public health issues associated with a range of key disease states. This subject focusses mainly on three pharmaceutical public health priority areas: Immunisation, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Respiratory disease. This subject introduces the student to the pharmaceutical public health issues associated with these diseases and some clinical management issues.
