People and Medicines (2) - Gastrointestinal/Nutrition - this module is focused on developing a holistic understanding of the gastrointestinal system, associated conditions and nutrition. The module content integrates and applies knowledge from the physical and biological sciences to the work of the practising pharmacist. As the gastrointestinal tract allows absorption of drugs into the blood stream, key areas of drug absorption and the delivery of oral products are considered. You will be encouraged to take a holistic view of medicine and how it is used, developing a
n understanding of the active pharmaceutical ingredient and formulation into a suitable dosage form, as well as patient-centred issues surrounding supply, administration and communication.
