This month’s featured module is the Exploring Potential New Treatments For Alzheimer’s Disease module. The Module was developed by Dr. Leanne Coyne, reviewed, and published to the Resource Bank in the Winter of 2014. The Exploring Potential New Treatments For Alzheimer’s Disease module was used in a neuropharmacology course to introduce students to the challenges in treating Alzheimer’s disease. This course is taught to pharmacy students in their second semester of pharmacy school. All students have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent and prior education in biology.
The Module focuses on three learning goals. The Learning Goals are:
- Explain what is currently known about the underlying pathophysiology of Alzheimer’s disease.
- Identify potential drug targets based upon our current understanding of Alzheimer’s disease pathophysiology.
- Predict systemic effects that may occur if a potential drug target is modulated.
The Exploring Potential New Treatments For Alzheimer’s Disease module includes a five question RAT and three Application Exercises.
