Fundamental Skills for Patient Care in Pharmacy Practice is an excellent guide and reference to help students and new pharmacists master the skills associated with patient care in either the inpatient or outpatient setting. Pharmacy students and pharmacists will learn the necessary steps to gain a medication history from a patient and counsel a patient on the most effective and safe manner to take their medications. Each chapter provides a background, information specific to the skill, any tools that may aid in the development and mastery of each skill, and tips for success. Students and pharmacists will come away with the knowledge to identify drug-related problems and formulate plans for solutions to these problems. Fundamental Skills for Patient Care in Pharmacy Practice also prepares future pharmacists to communicate effectively in verbal and written format with health professionals and special patient populations as they prepare and present SOAP Notes, patient cases, and discharge counseling.
