Course Objectives

Today’s clinicians treat more medically and pharmacologically compromised patients than ever before. The availability of more than a thousand active ingredients in several thousand different formulations, and with over 100,000 nonprescription medications, with hundreds of facts about each of them, presents a seemingly insurmountable challenge in mastering the essentials for the clinical decision making process. Fortunately, the clinician who understands general pharmacological principles can learn to predict the behavior of each drug based on a few facts. It is better to develop a drug profile than it is to memorize isolated data. The best way to achieve this objective is to associate, envision, predict, and inquire.

  • Associate each drug with information already know
  • Envision the course of events that would occur as a drug enters the patient’s body
  • Predict clinical uses and adverse drug effects based on a drug’s mechanism of action
  • Inquire which fact about a drug is going to impact on the clinical decision making process


Participants in this course will be introduced to representative cardiovascular drug profiles based on the top 200 drugs dispensed by U.S. community pharmacies. An awareness of the various drugs commonly prescribed drugs will assist clinicians in identifying patients with commonly encountered cardiovascular problems. The intent is to provide participants with evidence-based knowledge essential for risk stratification of patients taking cardiovascular drugs and the development of appropriate diagnostic, preventive, and therapeutic strategies commensurate with a patient’s ability to undergo and respond to dental care.


After completing this course the participant will have a better understanding and working knowledge of the following:

Evidence-based knowledge essential for risk stratifications of patients taking one of 200 drugs dispensed by United States community pharmacies and for the developing oral healthcare strategies commensurate with patients’ functional capacity.

  • Discuss the medical management of common systemic diseases predicated on the top 200 prescription drugs
  • Discuss disease-related, treatment-related and procedure-related variables
  • Develop therapeutic strategies predicated on the patient’s ability to undergo and respond to dental care
