WASHINGTON, DC December 02, 2013 – The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) published a concise, systematic introduction to the science of pharmacology for prepharmacy and pharmacy technician students.

In Understanding Drug Action: An Introduction to Pharmacology, author Peter J. Rice, PharmD, PhD, discusses pharmacology at a basic scientific level to build a framework of how drugs work. He supplements this discussion with information on some representative drugs that are used clinically.

Each reference chapter includes knowledge objectives, a glossary of key terms, and review questions with answers provided in the back of the book. Many chapters include tables by drug class that list important drugs by brand and generic names and dosage forms. More than 170 illustrations supplement the text.
