The Teaching Resource Centre (TRC) Pharmacology is meant for medical students, but also very useful for any health care professional.

The TRC provides basic pharmacological knowledge: pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, and drug mechanisms in context of (patho)physiology.

Each topic includes graphic(s) in the TRC icon language, explanatory texts and questions with feedback. The TRC covers most relevant drugs prescribed in Europe. Each drug topic has references to the Dutch national formulary (Farmacotherapeutisch Kompas) or the British National Formulary.

The TRC can be used as a reference or as self-study tool during courses throughout the medical curriculum. The TRC helps students to obtain pharmacological knowledge providing a consistent, user friendly, recognizable, and structured presentation in order to optimize learning efficiency.

We strive to make this application the best resource for mechanisms of drug action in the context of physiology and pathophysiology by creating each topic in cooperation with an expert from the field. Graphics, texts, questions, and other reference data are provided to enhance the understanding of the user.

The App is kept up to date with the newest drugs and thus updated regularly.

Excellent app

As a new specialist nurse, I am really enjoying using this app. It is packed full of information that is easy to understand and the pictures are great. I have learnt so much and would highly recommend it.
The information is broken into sections and it is easy to navigate between. 5 star teaching app

Medical Student

Embarking on my clinical years this is a tremendous resource of knowledge pitched at the right level so as not to be too overwhelming but providing appropriate detail on drug actions as well as information on related conditions and pathophysiology.

As a non-Dutch speaker my only problem was not being able to read articles linked to in the text, but this app is otherwise great!
