CRC Press, 28. aug. 2002 - 196 sider
As a pharmacy technician you are expected to have a broad knowledge of pharmacy practice and be skilled in the techniques required to order, stock, package, and dispense medications. However, you must also have a working understanding of the laws and regulations that govern the dispensing of medications. While there are excellent books covering pharmacy laws, regulations, and ethics, most are aimed at the university-level pharmacy student. There is no text written specifically for the pharmacy technician. Essentials of Law and Ethics for Pharmacy Technicians fills that niche. It presents the exact amount of information required at a level that is appropriate to a technician's practice and role.
This book discusses the many laws and regulations that pharmacy technicians must understand in order to practice in a legal and ethical manner. It presents an overview of the U.S. legal system, reviews the development of current laws and describes in detail the major laws affecting present-day pharmacy practice. Rather than searching through portions of several books, you can now find coverage of all the important legal topics in one source. Written and organized in a concise manner, Essentials of Law and Ethics for Pharmacy Technicians addresses the drug dispensing regulations and ethical issues technicians will encounter in their daily practice.
