Course Focus and Learning Objectives

VetCE on Demand: The A to Z of Pharmacology - Tips and Tricks to Remember Drugs, Classifications, and Actions utilizes the archive of a live presentation under the same name.

Pharmacology is a complex component of everyday veterinary practice. All medical team members need to have a strong grasp of drugs, their classifications, and their actions. The learning process does not need to be hard or boring. This course will share fun and effective tips and tricks to aid retention. Refresh your memory or pick up some new knowledge to assist as you work daily with pharmaceuticals.

At the end of this course the participant should be able to:
  • explain the common prefixes and suffixes used in veterinary pharmacology
  • discuss the common action of various classifications
  • develop memory aids to group drugs into categories
