A therapeutic drug monitoring course is a program designed to provide healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively monitor the levels of therapeutic drugs in their patients. The course typically covers the principles and methodologies of drug monitoring, including the use of laboratory tests and pharmacokinetic models to assess drug concentrations and optimize dosing regimens.
The course may cover a range of therapeutic areas, including infectious diseases, oncology, cardiology, and psychiatry, among others. It may also include discussions of drug interactions, adverse drug reactions, and other factors that can impact drug efficacy and safety.
By the end of the course, participants should have a solid understanding of the principles and practices of therapeutic drug monitoring and be able to apply this knowledge to improve patient outcomes and reduce the risk of adverse events associated with pharmacotherapy.

By the end of this course, Participant will be able to:

  1. Understand the principles of therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) and its significance in optimizing drug therapy.
  2. Familiarize students with essential pharmacokinetic principles relevant to TDM.
  3. Gain knowledge of different assay methods used in TDM, including immunoassay and chromatography techniques.
  4. Explore the application of TDM for various drug classes, such as chemotherapy, antibiotics, antifungal agents, antipsychotics, and anticonvulsants.
  5. Comprehend the science behind different assay methods used in TDM, including their strengths, limitations, and factors affecting accuracy.
  6. Learn about the workflow involved in TDM, from sample collection to result interpretation and integration into clinical decision-making.
  7. Understand the role of pharmacists in customizing and guiding the TDM process, including monitoring drug concentrations, adjusting dosages, and providing therapeutic recommendations.
