Pharmacy Management, Second Edition: Essentials for All Practice Settings, Second Edition 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

The information that is contained in this book is vast. It covers several economic factors (balance sheets, analysis,etc) but also marketing, humanistic outcomes, and other aspects of the career of pharmacy they label management. But there are great examples of all the financial tables and great stories/scenarios to illustrate the more abstract concepts. Many of the chapters get you thinking about factors in a pharmacy, changes you'd take, and if these are possible/economically achieveable/necessary.
