Overview

Due to the changing nature of the practice of pharmacy, today's pharmacists, pharmaceutical scientists, and researchers are faced with an increasing amount of ethical dilemmas. Pharmacoethics: A Problem Based Approach not only introduces the current ethical issues, it also provides decision making tools that can be applied to any ethical issue that may arise in the future.

The authors have identified seven clinical and research ethical competencies that pharmacists will face in their practice: professional responsibility, patient's rights, privacy and confidentiality, truth telling, reproductive ethics, distributive justice, and research ethics. They present 18 problem-based learning cases drawn from the literature and developed around these competencies. These cases use ill-structured ethical problems to demonstrate the types of dilemmas found in modern pharmaceutical practice and help readers acquire the critical decision making and communication skills they need to deal with them.

Unlike most texts that concentrate only on ethical principles and ethical decision-making, this book goes a step further. It demonstrates how to use motivational interviewing techniques to work through difficult ethical situations and attain a positive clinical, behavioral, and social outcome. Exploring issues that range from professional responsibility to patient's rights, Pharmacoethics: A Problem Based Approach provides a framework for developing the critical set of patient-related skills necessary for the practice of pharmacy.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Amy E. Lodolce, PharmD, BCPS(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Pharmacy)
Description:This ethics textbook uses a unique approach to teach pharmacy students about ethical principles: it contains 18 interactive cases involving a variety of real world scenarios.
Purpose:The purpose is to have the student learn both clinical and research-related ethics using a problem-based learning approach.
Audience:The book is intended as a textbook for pharmacy students enrolled in ethics courses. Pharmacy educators may also find the book useful for its unique approach in teaching ethical principles.
Features:The 18 cases from the courts allow students to practice thinking about relevant ethical principles in terms of application. The cases, complete with objectives, are divided into parts. The student is given sufficient background data and is asked to list problems, search the literature for further data, and identify ethical principles that may play a role in the case. Students are also provided with a list of articles, books, and Web sites that contain further data. The cases cover a variety of scenarios, one of which is ethics in research. This is an especially important concept in light of the new privacy laws affecting institutional review boards. In addition to the cases, the book contains four introductory chapters. Two key features covered in these chapters are a review of the problem-based learning process and tips for conducting a successful patient interview to probe for further data. Examples are given on how to approach difficult patients in an appropriate manner.
Assessment:Problem-based learning represents a large portion of current pharmacy curriculum with the intent of encouraging critical thinking and life-long learning. This book is a valuable addition to other pharmacy ethics textbooks because it goes beyond simply covering ethical principles and allows students to learn about ethical issues in the same manner they learn clinical information.
