This 1983 book reports the proceedings of the eleventh European symposium on clinical pharmacy which was held in Brussels in October 1982. The theme of the symposium was the concept of the therapeutic team and the relative contributions and responsibilities of pharmacists, nurses and physicians to the planning and implementation of drug treatment regimens. The first section of the volume provides an introduction to the concept of the therapeutic team and reflects the views several medical professionals. The later sections cover the practice of the therapeutic team in parenteral nutrition, oncology, dermatology, epilepsy, internal medicine, nuclear medicine and drug selection. Not only did this book review achievements and experiences in clinical pharmacy, but it also looked towards the future of clinical pharmacy development in Europe. It will still be of significant interest to clinical pharmacy specialists today.
