Publisher Oxford University Press

Overview
Taking medication is a common occurrence for many people, whether it is to soothe an aching head, regulate blood sugars, or to treat life threatening conditions, such as HIV or cancer. In the UK alone, over 900 million prescriptions are dispensed every year. Overseeing all of this are pharmacists: experts in medicines and their use. The Integrated Foundations of Pharmacy series supports those who are at the beginning of their journey to become a pharmacist. The reader will begin to understand how a drug molecule is made; the process that turns it into a medicine; the role the pharmacist has when dispensing that medicine; and what happens in the body when it is taken. Most importantly, the series shows how each of these aspects are integrated, reflecting the most up-to-date teaching practices. Pharmacy Practice examines what it means to be part of such an established profession and how this role has developed over time. While dispensing medicine remains a vital part of the job, the book illustrates how pharmacists have an ever-increasing role to play in providing health care, be it prescribing medicine themselves or providing public health advice.
