The world's largest faculty of psychology”
The levels of knowledge may vary depending on the skills and requirements of each person and each profession related to pharmacological therapeutics”
Pharmacology studies the properties and actions that medication produces in organisms, making it a biological science. Any chemical substance that interacts in the living organism is called a pharmaceutical drug. In a more restricted sense, and as it will be considered in this Postgraduate Certificate, a drug is any chemical substance used to prevent the appearance of an undesirable physiological process, or in the treatment, cure, prevention or diagnosis of a disease.
Medicines are therefore drugs that are used for therapeutic purposes, alone or in combination, representing a specialty. The action of drugs in the body, as well as their origin, synthesis, preparation, properties, actions from the molecular level to the level of the whole organism, their way of positioning and moving in the body, forms of administration, therapeutic indications, toxic actions, form the knowledge of pharmacology. It becomes, therefore, a multidisciplinary field that admits professionals from molecular biologists to psychotherapists.
Undoubtedly, the primary objective of Pharmacology is to benefit the patient, and to do so as rationally and strictly as it is usually done to reach the correct diagnosis. Psychologists can help with their expertise in the diagnosis and prescription of the most appropriate medication for each patient. In the last forty years, the development of chemistry, physiology and biochemistry, and analytical technology has made it possible to isolate highly active products from natural sources and, above all, design and synthesize new compounds, analyze their actions and effects at all possible levels of organization of the living substance, and learn about the processes that follow their passage through the organism. This has led to an explosion in the production of therapeutically active pharmaceutical products, an accumulation of information that is not always easy to assimilate, and, above all, the possibility of rigorous, objective and individualized application to the characteristics of each patient.
