We can predict potential drug-herb interactions. This course takes the basic pharmacology principles discussed in the Basics of Pharmacology course, including the ADME scheme and the therapeutic index, and applies them to understanding and predicting drug-herb interactions. In addition, recent areas of research related to interactions, such as p-glycoprotein and other transporters, will be discussed. The emphasis is on both the theoretical prediction and real world application of strategies for preventing and dealing with interactions. This includes a discussion about creating a Drug-Herb Interaction Matrix for determining an individual patient's risk. The template for the matrix will be provided as part of the course.

Some accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days.
If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days.
We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way. Just visit the course page in your Net of Knowledge account and click the "Request Approval" button at the top.
Each "Course and CEUs/CPDs" purchase grants you 1 request per accreditation body. If you request a course approval and do not complete it before its new expiration date, you will need to purchase another "CEU/CPD Add-On" to make another request.
If the course is ineligible for approval with an accreditation body due to their subject-matter policies, it will be listed as "[Ineligible]", and no requests will be possible for the course.
