Drug Monitoring 2016 is a multidisciplinary approach. Drug concentration measurements are requested to assist the management of a patient’s current medication regimen or to screen for a medicine. The Drug Monitoring studies are performed for monitoring drugs with narrow therapeutic ranges, drugs with marked pharmacokinetic variability, medications for which target concentrations are difficult to monitor, and drugs known to cause therapeutic and adverse effects. The process of TDM is predicated on the assumption that there is a definable relationship between dose and plasma or blood drug concentration, and between concentration and therapeutic effects. Accurate and clinically meaningful drug concentrations are attainable only by complete collaboration by a TDM team, typically comprised of scientists, clinicians, nurses, and pharmacists.
