Learning outcomes

Educational objective of the Course of Pharmacology is that students will acquire, through the analysis of the mechanisms of drug action, the ability to consider the drug as a tool to modulate cellular functions directly, or indirectly through activation of compensatory responses, and change the state of health of the patient. The student will be urged to make use of his/her knowledge of physiology and pathology in order to understand how the molecular and cellular mechanism of drug action determines the main therapeutic effect and the side- effects. The student will also be brought to understand that the size and quality of the effects, both desired and undesired, are a function of plasma concentration through the analysis of the pharmacokinetic, and as dose regimen should be adjusted according to the characteristics and liver - kidney functionality of the patient. The course will also teach the student, in an integrated vision, about the knowledge of the characteristics (mechanisms of action, kinetic, adverse reactions, therapeutic use) of different pharmacological classes, with particular reference to the application in dentistry.
