Practical and easy to understand, MEDICATION SAFETY: DISPENSING DRUGS WITHOUT ERROR gives readers an overview of the role of pharmacy technicians and pharmacists in today's rapidly changing practice of pharmacy. This comprehensive guide to pharmacy systems incorporates the theory of continuous quality improvement into every chapter and identifies where risk of error can be found and how plans can be developed and used to reduce those risks.
