Over the past years, the changing nature of pharmacy practice has caused many to realize that the practice must not only be managed, but also led. Leadership and Management in Pharmacy Practice discusses a variety of leadership and managerial issues facing pharmacists now and in the future.
This second edition has been reorganized by placing leadership chapters up front, followed by management chapters, thus emphasizing the need for leadership first. The book is written by contributors from within and outside pharmacy practice—a reflection of the complexity of management in pharmacy settings. It offers a real-world approach to everyday issues in pharmacy leadership and management, written by authors who have faced these issues themselves.
The book includes case studies which are thought provoking and promote critical thinking as well as problem solving—skills critical for effective pharmacy leaders or managers. References are also made throughout the text to changes occurring to the profession both internally and externally. Much of the material discussed applies to all settings of pharmacy practice: community, hospital, industry, ambulatory care, and long-term care.
This book provides pharmacy students and new pharmacy leaders and managers a broad overview of the complexities and intricacies inherent in managing and leading the profession. It is a valuable resource for students in the professional years of their pharmacy curricula and those promoted recently into pharmacy leadership or management positions.
"The book discusses leadership on a personal and organizational level and how to motivate and lead change. In addition, it delves into management of people, operations, clinical programs, informatics, and customer service as well as numerous other pharmacy-related management concerns. The management section is well done and applicable to the workplace."
