Overview


Math is at the heart of pharmaceutical care. A sound knowledge of math concepts is critical to the success of the Pharmacy Technician. Pharmaceutical Calculations for The Pharmacy Technician focuses on dosage calculations and basic math skills: from simple addition and subtraction to formulas used in dosage calculations to business math concepts. Accuracy in calculations will guide the Pharmacy Technician in the prevention of medication errors. From Doody's Book Review: "This book is innovative and a perfect learning tool. It is one of the first books to acknowledge the importance of a pharmacy technician's job and prepares the student for work in a pharmacy by relating the material to real-life experiences. It is the first book I have seen to include so many pictures of labels taken directly from manufacturers and forms taken directly from hospitals. This is invaluable exposure to what the technicians will see once they are in the working world. This book prepares pharmacy technicians for the responsibility of ensuring a safe healthcare environment by avoiding medication errors." Reviewed by Lindsay I.
