The Eighth Edition of the best-selling Pharmacy Practice and the Law reviews federal law and policy as it applies to and affects the pharmacist's practice. The Eighth Edition includes updates to account for new federal legal, regulatory, and policy developments. This comprehensive, accessible text provides background, history, and discussion of the law to enable students not only to learn the facts, but to help them understand, apply, and critically evaluate the information and how it will affect their practice. Challenging open-ended discussion questions and edited cases are included in every chapter to facilitate discussion and critical thinking. Citations to all laws, court cases, regulations, and other documents are provided. Critical issues are discussed in non-legal, easy-to-understand language. Pharmacy Practice and the Law, Eighth Edition is the essential resource both for teaching the facts of federal pharmacy law and for stimulating critical thinking issues in pharmacy law.
