Pharmacotherapy Workup Notes

The Pharmacotherapy Workup is the structured, rational thought process for making clinical decisions in pharmaceutical care.

The Pharmacotherapy Workup Notes (which can be found in Appendix C in the textbook) are paper forms of the documentation required to practice pharmaceutical care. Although a computerized software program is now available and accessible via the Internet (Assurance Pharmaceutical Care, copyright: 2001-2005. Regents of the University of Minnesota), we use the paper documentation to teach the practice. We introduce this documentation very early in the course. The Pharmacotherapy Workup Notes are handed out for Assignment #2. Although the documentation is not required until Assignment #4, we suggest that the student become familiar with the data required and the decisions documented from the first time he/she talks with a patient.
