Book Description

It is crucial that pharmacists understand the language of health care professionals and, in turn, can convey the information in an understandable fashion to patients. Procter & Gamble Pharmacist's Handbook, Second Edition facilitates this communication. Now, all in one place, you can have medical terms, abbreviations, and patient counseling principles right at your fingertips. The handbook begins with an Inverted Medical Dictionary to translate lay terminology to more technical vocabulary and an Eponyms section to translate medical terminology to language that is comprehensible to patients. The Dictionary shows how to analyze the medical terms by identifying its root, suffix, and prefix. This examination is supplemented with numerous tables of common roots, suffixes, and prefixes. The book concludes with a glossary of managed care terms that will help you understand the language of the insurance community.

Another critical responsibility of a pharmacist is to clearly comprehend a prescription. The sections containing Medical Abbreviations and Terms Used in Prescription Writing will aid in this vital task. Also included in the handbook are general references, such as normal laboratory values, conversion factors, and weights and measures. These features make Procter & Gamble Pharmacist's Handbook, Second Edition a convenient and handy resource for the practicing pharmacist.
