Physical and Occupational Therapy literature provides limited coverage of medications commonly seen in practice. Additionally, these sources of information provide only superficial coverage of pharmacologic principles and how these relate to therapeutic interventions for our patients. The aim of this series is to present the most common drug categories seen in practice and discuss their interaction with exercise, when applicable. The first course in this series introduces learners to the general principles of pharmacology. Students will also learn how to recognize adverse drug events and to use physical findings to determine toxicity.
