Pharmacology is a branch of the biological sciences that examines the way drugs act on the body. Pharmacology examines the two-way interactions between these substances and our bodies. When these interactions yield a medicinal effect, the drug in question is defined as a pharmaceutical.
The broadest goal of pharmacology is to understand the properties of various drugs, but this is just the first step. Pharmacology also seeks to understand different classes of drugs, their therapeutic uses, societal roles different drugs play, and the mechanisms by which they act on the body.
Pharmacological knowledge is very important for medical assistants and pharmacy technicians. It’s essential to understand the effects and risks of different pharmaceuticals and drug combinations when administering or dispensing medicine for patients.
