A 2 Day Workshop on Basic Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics
Canberra, Australia
9th & 10th February 2012

This 2 day work shop will be run by leading experts in the area of
pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. The workshop will cover basic
aspects of pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and bioequivalence with
pharmaceutical and clinical applications.

For Whom Intended. This course is intended for pharmaceutical
scientists, pharmacologists, pharmacists and physicians wishing to
understand and apply pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic principles in
their practice. Only minimal prior knowledge of pharmacokinetics is assumed.

Workshop Content The Workshop is divided into 3 parts (1)

Topics to be covered include:
Pharmacokinetics: Clearance, volume, half-life, drug
Pharmacodynamics: Emax, C50, immediate effects, delayed effects and
disease progression.
Bioequivalence: Absorption, rate and extent, and bioequivalence analysis.
