This book aims to equip pharmacists with the knowledge and skills required to discharge their clinical pharmacy practice responsibilities in the Indian scenario. The focus is on providing information about how clinical pharmacy is practiced rather than what they need to know about drugs and therapeutics.
Completely revised and updated, this edition includes four new chapters: Community Pharmacy Practice, Medication Use in Pregnancy and Lactation, Ethical Issues in Clinical Research and Poison Information. These chapters address practice areas of great relevance to Indian pharmacists and result in a more comprehensive text overall.
A balanced mix of content, case studies, references and website links has been provided to make the topics as clear and interesting to the reader as possible. Additional appendices comprise laboratory reference values for adults and how to take medication history.
