Extensively revised and updated for its Third Edition, this pocket-sized manual is written for students to use during rotations in PharmD programs. It provides a unique reference source for the introductory clerkship and is the only clinical clerkship manual designed specifically for pharmacy students. This manual eases the transition from classroom to experiential training and provides quick reference material needed for day-to-day clinical work. It helps students move from dispensing medications to establishing relationships with patients, and improves the student's understanding of pharmacotherapeutics in a patient-centered setting. Numerous boxes, drawings, and tables help illustrate information about drugs, procedures, and equipment.

A companion website offers the fully searchable text.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Zina T. Saidi, Pharm.D.(Jeanes Hospital)
Description: This is a quick clinical reference tool on patient care for pharmacy students on rotations as well as for practicing pharmacists. The previous edition was published in 2001.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a valuable clinical information tool in a pocket-sized format.
Audience: The target audience is primarily pharmacy students starting their clerkship rotations, but practicing pharmacists will find this book handy in their clinical practice. The author is a dean of a school of pharmacy and the contributing authors are preceptors and practicing pharmacists.
Features: This clinical guide provides important information for both the hospital pharmacy and the community pharmacy settings. The 21 chapters cover a wide range of information. The book starts with how to be professional in the practice of pharmacy and how to provide drug information correctly to health professionals and patients. It then provides a complete guide to physical exams, lab values, different procedures, nutrition, calculations, infectious disease, pain management, OTC drugs, and even vaccines and pharmacy law. The figures throughout the book are a great help in reviewing human anatomy. Purchasers get access to a companion website with a searchable, online version of the book
Assessment: The subtitle, A Guide to the Clinical Experience, describes exactly what the pharmacy student or practitioner gets. This is a complete reference to all the pertinent information needed to complete a student clerkship.
