Dr. Ciccone comprehensively covers all the major drug categories that are relevant to rehabilitation specialists, focusing on drug indications, mechanism of action, and impact on rehabilitation in his thoroughly revised text drawn from the most current peer-reviewed research. With the science of pharmacology changing so rapidly, students and clinicians need this up-to-date, relevant, and credible source of information. This new 4th edition continues to be user friendly - complex information is presented in a clear, organized manner and the text demystifies the practice of pharmacology.
