Taking medication is a common occurrence for many people, whether it is to soothe an aching head, regulate blood sugars, or to treat life threatening conditions, such as HIV or cancer. In the UK alone, over 900 million prescriptions are dispensed every year. Overseeing all of this arepharmacists: experts in medicines and their use. The Integrated Foundations of Pharmacy series supports those who are at the beginning of their journey to become a pharmacist. The reader will begin to understand how a drug molecule is made; the process that turns it into a medicine; the role the pharmacist has when dispensing that medicine; andwhat happens in the body when it is taken. Most importantly, the series shows how each of these aspects are integrated, reflecting the most up-to-date teaching practices. Pharmacy Practice examines what it means to be part of such an established profession and how this role has developed over time. While dispensing medicine remains a vital part of the job, the book illustrates how pharmacists have an ever-increasing role to play in providing health care, be itprescribing medicine themselves or providing public health advice.Online Resource Centre:The Online Resource Centre to accompany Pharmacy Practice features: For registered adopters of the book:* Figures from the book, available to download.For students:* Self-assessment questions to help the reader to check and reinforce understanding of the material introduced in each chapter.

Editorial Reviews

"I have been looking for this book for a long time, as all important issues in pharmacy practice are put into one place. This makes it easier for students, pharmacists and academics to grasp the basic concepts of pharmacy practice and its integration with other pharmacy-related disciplines.The book is student-friendly and well written using simple language with some pharmacy and healthcare terminology. Even though it is aimed at first-year pharmacy students, I have found it very useful for my MPharm course at all levels (Levels 1-4) and MSc pharmacy programmes. Most importantly, thecontent and relevant learning objectives correspond well to the learning outcomes and indicative syllabus set out by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC)." --Win Winit-Watjana, Faculty of Applied Sciences, University of Sunderland
