Summary: "The practice of pharmacy in secondary and tertiary care has changed dramatically over recent years, corresponding to considerable changes in modern healthcare provision. The pharmacy department is now an established part of most hospitals -- the pharmacy team playing a pivotal role in patient care. Hospital Pharmacy outlines the changes in pharmacy practice within the hospital setting and discusses the vast range of services that are now provided. Each chapter is devoted to an area of pharmacy practice and discusses its history, current practice and future developments. As well as considering well-established facets of hospital pharmacy practice, such as technical services and clinical pharmacy, this text also covers the evolving relationship of the hospital pharmacy with other healthcare departments. This book is essential reading for pharmacy undergraduates, preregistration graduates and newly qualified pharmacists. With its broad, all-encompassing coverage it will also be of interest to other healthcare professionals. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET.
