Overview

Pharmacy Case Studies offers a holistic and integrated approach to learning, which textbooks often lack. Case studies of increasing complexity tie in the strands of learning from across the pharmacy curriculum. Primarily aimed at pharmacy students and pre-registration pharmacists, this book will also be useful for qualified pharmacists as well as medical students, nurses and others with a professional interest in therapeutics. Each chapter contains five case studies with questions and answers increasing in complexity from those for first year students through to cases designed for fourth year/pre-registration level. The chapters loosely follow the order of the British National Formulary chapters for ease of use. Case study scenarios include both community and hospital pharmacy situations as suited to the disease and pharmaceutical care provision.
