Description

Pharmacy is the nation’s third largest health profession, with nearly 200,000 licensed pharmacists in the United States and 125,000 practicing in community pharmacies. It is in community settings where pharmaceutical care will be judged, accepted, and ultimately paid for. Pharmaceutical Care: Insights from Community Pharmacists introduces the conceptual framework for pharmaceutical care. The authors show you how to apply economic, business, and societal models to better understand it, and they look at the trends in healthcare that drive it.

Vignettes and interviews are the real strength of this book, bringing you the insights of selected pharmacists who were among the first to develop pharmaceutical care services. The pharmacists you meet in this book are committed to providing the best patient care possible and are willing to expend considerable personal time and energy to achieve this goal. Through their interviews, you will follow the pharmacists down their path of passionate commitment to helping patients.

The authors also outline a seven-step process demonstrating how these professionals built innovative pharmacy practices in community settings. Pharmaceutical Care is a motivating resource for those wishing to better understand the new patient-centered roles being advocated by pharmacy leaders.
