Reviewer: Barbara L Giacomelli, PharmD, MBA, FASHP(McKesson Provider Technologies) Description: This is a comprehensive guide to the laws that affect pharmacy. It is easy to follow with appropriate questions at the end of each chapter to test knowledge. Purpose: The purpose is to update readers on healthcare laws and regulations that impact pharmacy. It meets its goal as a general overview, but doesn't provide specific details on individual state regulations. Audience: The book is written at a level appropriate for pharmacy students. The topics do not just provide information for students to prepare for the boards, they also help to generate discussion and provide a well-rounded explanation of healthcare law. Features: The highlights of the book are how relevant the information is to pharmacy law and regulation, how it covers topics that are broader than just pharmacy (i.e. Medicare and Medicaid), and the way it is written at a level that is easy to follow. Assessment: I found this book useful. There isn't any information on the recently passed federal healthcare reform act, but it covers relevant information that all practicing pharmacists should know.

This reference book on pharmacy law is designed for use by faculty teaching pharmacy law courses as a textbook to guide the students through the various aspects and applications of law. The purpose is to provide an overview of pharmacy law in the U.S. This book is intended for use primarily by students and faculty involved in pharmacy law coursework. It is of some value to the practicing pharmacist who would like to review specific applications of the law. This edition has been condensed from 16 chapters into eight. The first five are an introduction to the law, the Food Drug and Cosmetic Act, and the Controlled Substance Act. In the next chapter the authors focus on the federal influences that impact the practice of pharmacy (e.g. OBRA, Medicare, Medicaid). In the seventh chapter they describe the state responsibilities in regulating pharmacy and in the final chapter they discuss malpractice issues. There are summary cases at the end of each chapter, designed to promote lively discussion in the classroom. They are particularly helpful in illustrating various interpretations of the law. This reference is well written and extremely valuable to faculty teaching students pharmacy law. The authors clearly have a great depth and breadth of experience in this area and have incorporated many changes based on feedback from those using this reference in coursework. The cases have been added to this edition to stimulate critical thinking by the students and embrace the educational philosophy of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. Using the cases in a classroom setting, students can learn to understand that pharmacy law is not always black-and-white.

This book attempts to describe all the legal and ethical issues a pharmacy student needs to know. The purpose is to provide a framework for learning the federal and some state laws and rules pertaining to pharmacy and its special area. This book is needed and the author's objectives are met. This book is intended for students in colleges of pharmacy and clearly meets the needs of the intended audiences. The coauthors are very credible authorities on the subjects. Very few tables, graphs, charts, or illustrations appear in the book, and more could be added. The references and the ethics section are of great value. The table of cases and the table of contents are very good. The chapter objectives serve as a valuable tool to the classroom instructor. This would be a great addition to the libraries of the pharmacy law student and faculty member. The overall outline and subsequent flow make the text useful in the classroom. The case index and ethics section are highly useful to advanced students and continuing education programs.
Overviews criminal, civil, and administrative law as it applies to pharmacy practice. This third edition includes new case studies and discussion questions, and contains updated material on new regulations and changes in pharmacy law and practice.

Reviewer: Albert I Wertheimer, BS, MBA, PhD (Temple University School of Pharmacy) Description: The book covers just about any topic one might imagine in pharmacy practice and medication usage. Laws, rules, and regulations are explained using actual cases, legislation, and court decisions. This edition offers a great deal of new material, which is described early in the book. Purpose: The purpose is to provide a source of the facts of pharmacy law along with a degree of depth to support these facts while stimulating critical thinking. This is a very reasonable goal, since pharmacy graduates need to understand the legal environment in which they will practice to help guide their practice behaviors. Audience: The major audience is pharmacy students enrolled in pharmacy law or jurisprudence courses. In addition, the book makes an excellent reference for store managers and pharmacists already in practice in all settings. The author, Professor Abood, is one of the top one or two experts in pharmacy law in the United States. Features: Each of the eight chapters includes study scenarios, questions, and case studies. The chapters progress from macro to micro, with the earliest chapters covering state and federal law and the judicial system, before moving on to regulations on manufacturing, dispensing, and malpractice. The topics of controlled substances, privacy, generic drugs, and Medicare and Medicaid programs get ample coverage. The book is easy to use with a reader friendly glossary, fairly thorough index, and a table of cases. Another of the book's superb features is the companion website for purchasers of the book who register online. Some additional graphics, cartoons, or diagrams would break up the nearly 500 pages of line after line text. Assessment: This book is truly outstanding, as one would expect with the benefit of feedback and reader suggestions from the previous six editions. This edition has new Medicaid and Medicare information and an explanation of the Affordable Care Act. In fact, all eight chapters have valuable additions.
4 Stars! from Doody
This book is great only if you are a lawyer looking to get some brief insight into the aspects of law in the pharmacy world. It has very little usage for the practical usage of pharmacy practice itself, and it mostly about law and the history of pharmacy law. The sentences are not very concise, the sentence structures are confusing, and the ideas are not very clear. It would be better to get the Weisman book from USC.
