Foundation in Pharmacy Practice (Free PDF)


File Size: 4.47 Mb

Description
The principal aim of this book is to provide an essential reference on Pharmacy Practice for Pharmacy Masters (MPharm) students, particularly those just embarking on their study of Pharmacy at undergraduate level. As such, it provides an overview of the major topics in Pharmacy Practice encountered by such students, in a practical, clear and succinct manner.

As a text aimed at new Pharmacy students, it is not intended as an exhaustive reference text for each topic covered; rather, it should be considered as a starting point for further study, facilitated by regular signposting and referencing to the many excellent advanced texts available. Students are strongly encouraged to pursue such directions as required, and as their overall level of understanding and ability develops.

The rapidly changing nature of the profession and the unfamiliar terminology and acronyms that are widely used often present barriers to students beginning their study of Pharmacy Practice. This book provides a glossary of common terms used in the discipline, which can be used either as the book is read as a whole, or as a companion text during the study of other texts on Pharmacy Practice.
