Rezension: "Introduction to Hospital & Health-System Pharmacy Practice""The Journal of Pharmacy Technology, MARCH/APRIL 2011 n VOLUME 27 n J PHARM TECHNOL 92 " Therapeutic Area: Professional pharmacy practice.Format: Softcover textbook; additional instructor material is available online.Audience: This book is designed primarily for pharmacy students considering a career in ahealth-system practice; the authors also state that the book would be useful for students and practicing pharmacists in other settings who are interested in learning more about institutional practice or who are considering a change in practice setting. Unidentified audience members could also include the pharmacy technician practicing in the institutional setting as well as ancillary support practitioners (eg, educators, performance improvement facilitators) seeking an overview of key pharmacy practice areas. Purpose: The purpose of this book is to describe and explain the basics of institutional pharmacy practice. The authors state that this text presents "an overview of essential terms, concepts, and processes in health-system pharmacy in a concise, practical, and understandable way."Content: The contents of the book are divided into 8 parts for easy reference: Introduction, Managing Medication Use, Managing Medication Distribution, Using Technology, FinancialManagement, Sterile Product Preparation and Administration, Managing People, andCareers in Health-System Pharmacy Practice. The 19 chapters contained within the 8 sections are consistently organized with learning objectives, key terms and definitions, narrative content, keypoint sidebars, chapter review questions, chapter discussion questions, a suggested reading list, and a references list. Straightforward definitions and clear explanations provide a basic foundation for learning and application in practice settings.The first 3 sections (Introduction, Managing Medication Use, Managing Medication Distribution) offer a succinct history of institutional pharmacy in the US and an interesting retrospective on the impetus for change at key points in history. The section "UsingTechnology" offers a useful summary and overview of electronic data management, electronic medical records, and informatics. Included are definitions, concepts, and processes that are critical to health information system experts but not routinely part of the pharmacy practice curriculum; this section will be particularly valuable for the practicingpharmacist without formal informatics training. The sections on financial management and managing people, in conjunction with the technology section, would provide an excellent impromptu preparatory management course both for students and new managers.Usability: This book is up-to-date, easy to read, and user-friendly, with many useful graphics, illustrations, and references. The price is reasonable for both the student and the practicing pharmacist. Highlights: The stated learning objectives, keypoint sidebars, and chapter review questions emphasize key learning points and may be useful as a foundationfor demonstrating competence of both students and established practitioners. Limitations: Because this book is promoted as an introductory text for institutional and health-system pharmacy, there may be a tendency for seasoned practitioners to overlook it as an addition to their library. That would be an unfortunate oversight, as this volume presents something for everyone, be it historical oversight or succinct summary of necessary safety processes.Comparison with Other Related Books or Products: This book, loosely based on the more comprehensiveHandbook of Institutional Pharmacy Practice,4th edition, focuses on the essentials in order to givea broad picture of the roles and responsibilities of ahealth-system pharmacist. This text has a more didacticand general educational feel, as well as providingmany practical applications and examples for the principles described. Reviewer's Summary: Introduction to Hospital & Health-System Pharmacy Practice is a text that introduces students of all ages to professional pharmacy practice in the health-system organization. Overall, it is an excellent introductory text and useful reference to be included in any practitioner's library.
