Includes 18 problem-based learning cases to help students develop critical decision-making skills. Encourages students to collect information, then think about how ethical principles and moral rules apply differently to common situations. Provides modified essay questions and multiple choice questions. Extends student learning beyond the more principle-driven realm of ethical decision-making to incorporate more practical aspects of communicating decisions effectively and compassionately. The changing nature of the practice of pharmacy increases the amount of ethical issues pharmacists will face during their careers. Reflecting the growing trend for expanded coverage of pharmacoethics in the pharmacy curriculum and the advent of problem-based learning, Pharmacoethics: A Problem Based Learning Approach presents 18 problem-based learning cases that utilize ill-structured ethical dilemmas to help students develop critical decision-making and communication skills. The book teaches students how to make decisions by collecting information and examining how ethical principles and moral rules apply differently to common situations, providing them with a problem-based learning framework.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
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.
