Pharmacy Practice provides the pharmacy technician student with the necessary techniques and procedures to prepare and dispense medications in both the community and institutional pharmacy settings. Preparing medications involves using sterile and nonsterile techniques to count, measure, and compound drugs. The text covers reading the prescription in the community pharmacy or medication order in the hospital pharmacy; preparing, packaging, and labeling the medication; and maintaining the patient profile. It also introduces other medication and non medication activities related to pharmacy, including billing and inventory management. The activities of the pharmacy technician are very important to the level of quality of care the patient receives as the support provided by the technicians allows the pharmacist to spend more time counseling patients and monitoring drug therapy. The concepts taught in the text are reinforced by the new interactive, multimedia Encore CD.
