From The CriticsReviewer: 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.
