The many essential interfaces of clinical pharmacology.

Abstract:

:1. Clinical pharmacology requires numerous skills and most activities involve interactions with other specialities, both clinical and experimental. 2. A range of experts has had a major influence on the nature and design of my research, which is illustrated by the evolution of my knowledge of adverse drug reactions and how to prevent them. 3. Clinical pharmacologists are uniquely placed to coordinate programmes to achieve quality use of medicines. but we will only achieve our aims if multiple interactions with other experts are encouraged and developed.
