NEW YORK – June 16, 2015 – McGraw-Hill Education, the learning science company, announced that the classic text Pharmacotherapy: Principles and Practice, Third Edition, is now available online for the first time via AccessPharmacy®, McGraw-Hill Education’s comprehensive, content-rich online resource for pharmacy students and instructors and practicing pharmacists.

Pharmacotherapy Principles & Practice is widely acknowledged as one of the premier texts in the field. It uses a solid evidence-based approach to teach how to design, implement, monitor, and evaluate medication therapy. This trusted text provides everything needed to gain an in-depth understanding of the principles essential to optimal pharmacotherapy of disease. It consists of more than 100 disease-based chapters that review etiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical presentation, followed by therapeutic recommendations for drug selection, dosing, and patient monitoring. In order to be as clinically relevant as possible, the disease states and treatments discussed focus on disorders most often seen in clinical practice.

In addition to providing an authoritative content library, AccessPharmacy offers powerful tools and features that deliver indispensable clinical and educational support. A key component is Custom Curriculum, a powerful workflow tool that enables pharmacy faculty to customize content as well as manage students’ and residents’ training from one convenient site.

“The decision to add Pharmacotherapy Principles and Practice to our suite of medical products was in direct response to feedback from the pharmacy education community for online access to this important resource. It means that instructors are now able to seamlessly integrate this cornerstone text directly into their curriculum,” said Scott Grillo, vice president of McGraw-Hill Education’s Professional group.
