This assignment stems from the spirit of the 1966 movie Fantastic Voyage where a group of medical professionals are miniaturized and injected into the blood stream of a comatose peer in order to treat a blood clot in his brain. This group encounters normal bodily processes which try to attack them, the “foreign object”. With this introduction, your Pharmtastic voyage will require you to follow this medication’s voyage in the body from absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and pharmacodynamics to include where in the body the medication exerts influence to include side effects. The goal is to understand how medications affect the body and don’t just “fix” the intended diagnostic issue. It is recommended that you choose a medication that is absorbed via a route other than by mouth in order to provide variety and further understanding regarding the various methods of absorption.
Each topic, absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and the pharmacodynamics of a drug, will be generally worth 20 points for a total score of 100 points. Since this is your opportunity to be creative and present something fun, points for creativity will be considered in the overall grade. To meet the expectation of this assignment, the student will post responses which consistently show evidence of critical thinking, analysis, and synthesis. Providing a "laundry list" of actions or side effects is not appropriate. You need to apply your new knowledge to the medications pharmacodynamics. For instance, how does the mechanism of action of the medication cause a specific side effect?
One example for this assignment is to use a Super Hero as the medication fighting the "enemy" or a disease process. Other examples can be linked here: Pharmtastic Voyage Example in Word and Pharmtastic Voyage Example in PowerPoint.
