Specifically, the course will cover the cardiovascular principles and which important drug classes are commonly involved with toxic side effects that might present to healthcare professionals. A number of medications used for the treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders is also commonly associated with a wide range of toxic effects that require immediate attention in a clinical setting. Also, inherently linked to toxicity is the use of antibiotics and chemotherapeutics which display a number of specific toxic effects.
