The Critical Care Therapeutics Elective course is designed to expose students to the complex pathophysiology and clinical presentation of common diseases, pharmacotherapy, and decision-making processes for the treatment of patients who are critically ill. Students will be introduced to clinical pharmacy practice opportunities in the adult ICU setting and will learn treatment principles of commonly encountered disorders in critically ill patients. With integration of pathophysiology and therapeutics of various critical care disease states, the candidate will acquire knowledge necessary to apply critical care pharmacotherapeutic management, with an emphasis on the role of pharmacists in initiating, monitoring, and altering drug therapy to achieve optimal clinical outcomes. Learning techniques may include but are not limited to class discussion, formulation of a comprehensive medication management plan for patient cases, and student presentations.
