Editorial Reviews

Joan M. Stachnik
This book is a discussion of ethics concerning patient care issues as they relate to the pharmacist. The purpose is to provide pharmacists with an opportunity to become aware of ethics and moral issues encountered within the scope of the practice of pharmacy, and the ethical implications of their actions. The audience of this reference is any practicing pharmacist, student, or any practitioner involved in the education of pharmacists. Because of the wide range of clinical situations presented, other healthcare professionals may benefit from this reference. This reference contains a number of case studies in which a wide range of situations encountered by pharmacists is described. Cases range from ""every day"" occurrences in a community pharmacy -- such as dispensing of generic drugs -- to care of critical and dying patients. In each case a situation actually encountered by a pharmacist involving some type of moral or ethical issue is described. A commentary of the ethical implications of the pharmacist's action follows each case. The text is arranged in three parts -- Ethics and Values in Pharmacy; Ethical Principles in Pharmacy Ethics; and Special Problem Areas -- with cases specific to those topics discussed in each part. In the introduction authors review the principles and concepts of ethics by explaining the four basic questions of ethics. Although the cases are not referenced, each topic section includes notes listing references pertinent to that topic. The authors of this book provide practical illustrations of ethical or moral issues facing practicing pharmacists. Although there are many references on ethics and the practice of medicine, there are few that relate ethicsto pharmacy. In this reference the authors not only address ethical issues encountered in ""life-and-death"" situations, but they also include ethical case discussions on everyday practices that the majority of pharmacists encounter.
