Pharmaceutics: Basic Principles and Application to Pharmacy Practiceis an engaging textbook that covers all aspects of pharmaceutics with emphasis on the basic science and its application to pharmacy practice. Based on curricular guidelines mandated by the American Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), this book incorporates laboratory skills by identifying portions of each principle that can be used in a clinical setting. In this way, instructors are able to demonstrate their adherence to ACPE standards and objectives, simply by using this book. Written in a straightforward and student-friendly manner,Pharmaceuticsenables students to gain the scientific foundation to understand drug physicochemical properties, practical aspects of dosage forms and drug delivery systems, and the biological applications of drug administration. Key ideas are illustrated and reinforced through chapter objectives and chapter summaries. A companion website features resources for students and instructors, including videos illustrating difficult processes and procedures as well as practice questions and answers. Instructor resources include Powerpoint slides and a full-color image bank. This book is intended for students in pharmaceutical science programs taking pharmaceutics or biopharmaceutics courses at the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral level.
