Book Description

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.
