Modern drug therapy remains one of the most successful interventions in individual patient treatment and the pharmacist, in contributing significant expertise in the delivery of that therapy, performs a fundamental role as a provider within the health care team. Pharmacy practice today is going through a period of exciting and innovative change and development. The adoption of new models of professional practice has distinct legal and ethical implications for the practising pharmacist. This new title describes, analyses and puts into context the legal reality of the practice of pharmacy by outlining the duties and obligations which surround the roles and functions of pharmacists. Such duties and obligations arise from the countless laws which apply to the organisation, administration and processes of the pharmacy profession. Blackstone's Pharmacy Law & Practice also gives specific coverage to the ethical issues which form part of the professional responsibility of pharmacists.
It is essential that pharmacists have a thorough understanding of the concept of ethics, the place of ethics in the professional setting and the provision of a structured method for the resolution of ethical questions and dilemmas.
