Text Book of Hospital & Clinical Pharmacy (ER2020-25T)
Hospital & Clinical Pharmacy is the discipline of pharmacy which involves developing the professional roles of pharmacists. Hospital & Clinical Pharmacy offers practicing pharmacists in-depth useful reviews and research trials and surveys of new drugs and novel therapeutic approaches. However, many pharmacists act independently in some of the roles they undertake. Hospital & Clinical Pharmacy mainly consists of Therapeutic drug Monitoring, Clinical Pharmacy, Community Pharmacy, Hospital Pharmacy, Pharmacy and Therapeutic Committee, Adverse Drug Reactions, Inventory management etc. Clinical Pharmacy is positioning itself as the neighborhood community health center, often by placing ambulatory care centers run by nurse practitioners (NPs) or physician assistants (PAs) within the Clinical Pharmacy—helping to continue to blur the lines between professions.
