    The Encyclopedia of Clinical Pharmacy is a valuable resource for today's clinical pharmacist and pharmacotherapist. Over 200 researchers and practitioners provide ready access to more than 5,000 primary literature citations and hard-to-find research on:

    • Gene therapy
    • Health service delivery models
    • Best practices documents
    • Pharmaceutical software development
    • Legal controversies, ethical issues, and court rulings
    • Drug dosing and electronic prescription
    • Post-marketing surveillance
    • Generic equivalency
    • Quality management procedures
    • Educational and training programs

    Compiling expertise and recommendations from the American College of Clinical Pharmacy and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, the Encyclopedia unravels the increasing complexity of pharmacotherapy, the problems of medication-related morbidity and mortality, and the impact that clinically empowered pharmacists have on assuring safe and effective pharmaceutical care for patients.

    A to Z listings: 'Academia, Clinical Pharmacy Careers in', to 'World Health Organization Essential Drug List'.
