Description

Pharmacy Practice discusses the many factors impinging on daily practice and the place of pharmacy in the delivery of health care. The book goes beyond simply considering how pharmacy is practised and draws on a diverse range of disciplines, including sociology, social policy, psychology, anthropology, history and health economics, with each contributor bringing a unique perspective and insight into that practice. In this fully updated edition, the content and presentation have been thoroughly revised and new material added to reflect the many changes that have occurred in the last edition, particularly in pharmacy and health policy and professional regulation and development. The book provides the background and context for issues currently impacting professional practice and which will determine how pharmacy will develop in the future.
