Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

explain the main principles of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics

describe the mechanism of action, pharmacological effects, therapeutic uses, contraindications, safety issues and side effects of major drug classes and commonly used therapeutic agents

discuss drug toxicity and interactions between drugs using specific examples of drugs and considering individual variability of drug response
