The pharmacy department is now an established part of most hospitals with the pharmacist playing a pivotal role in the pharmaceutical care of the patient.

Reviews The Clinical Pharmacy Pocket Companion is a comprehensive A—Z handbook containing a range of tools, suggestions and advice for administering effective pharmaceutical care. Bringing together a wealth of information not easily found in other reference sources, it provides essential, practical data for daily use by clinical pharmacists and other healthcare professionals. In this second edition, the entries have been rewritten and revised by specialist pharmacists and clinicians from across the UK. It is an essential handy guide and aims to complement existing resources used regularly such as the British National Formulary BNF , and the local health economy formulary. This book is an invaluable tool for practising pharmacists, medical staff, clinical technicians and pharmacy students, providing information on obscure problems as well as routine queries.
They include stories from pharmacists near the battlefield, on medical missions, in the expert witness stand, and working with the drug information department of the US Food and Drug Administration.
But mostly these are stories from pharmacists and pharmacy students working in hospitals, ambulatory clinics, and community pharmacies, reflecting on their interactions with patients. I had never read a book quite like this before, a book in which pharmacists are articulate not only about clinical facts, but about their heartfelt response to patients and their suffering.
The pharmacists who contributed to this book provide vivid accounts of their interactions with patients in a variety of care settings.
They are honest about their emotional responses to the patient needs that they encounter. They describe the insights they have gained and how they have been changed by their experiences.
In short, the humanity of pharmacists is on display throughout this book. The stories of deep connection between pharmacist and patients have inspired me to reach out in greater compassion to the patients and families I work with in the intensive care unit.
The book has, in a sense, given me permission to move beyond my cognitive skills and reach out in a new way to patients and families, to see them as persons first instead of merely recognizing them by their disease states.
I have written this correspondence because I think that Nourishing the Soul of Pharmacy is a gem of a book that I want other Canadian pharmacists to know about. The official designation for pharmacists who pass the ambulatory care pharmacy specialty certification exam will be Board Certified Ambulatory Care Pharmacist and these pharmacists will carry the initials BCACP. For example, if a drug manufacturer only provides a drug as a tablet, a compounding pharmacist might make a medicated lollipop that contains the drug.
Patients who have difficulty swallowing the tablet may prefer to suck the medicated lollipop instead. Another form of compounding is by mixing different strengths g, mg, mcg of capsules or tablets to yield the desired amount of medication indicated by the physician , physician assistant , Nurse Practitioner , or clinical pharmacist practitioner.
This form of compounding is found at community or hospital pharmacies or in-home administration therapy.
Compounding pharmacies specialize in compounding, although many also dispense the same non-compounded drugs that patients can obtain from community pharmacies. Main article: Consultant pharmacist Consultant pharmacy practice focuses more on medication regimen review i.
Consultant pharmacists most typically work in nursing homes , but are increasingly branching into other institutions and non-institutional settings. This trend may be gradually reversing as consultant pharmacists begin to work directly with patients, primarily because many elderly people are now taking numerous medications but continue to live outside of institutional settings. The main principle of consultant pharmacy is developed by Hepler and Strand in Since about the year , a growing number of Internet pharmacies have been established worldwide.
Many of these pharmacies are similar to community pharmacies, and in fact, many of them are actually operated by brick-and-mortar community pharmacies that serve consumers online and those that walk in their door.
The primary difference is the method by which the medications are requested and received. Some customers consider this to be more convenient and private method rather than traveling to a community drugstore where another customer might overhear about the drugs that they take. Internet pharmacies also known as online pharmacies are also recommended to some patients by their physicians if they are homebound.
While most Internet pharmacies sell prescription drugs and require a valid prescription, some Internet pharmacies sell prescription drugs without requiring a prescription.
Many customers order drugs from such pharmacies to avoid the "inconvenience" of visiting a doctor or to obtain medications which their doctors were unwilling to prescribe. There also have been reports of such pharmacies dispensing substandard products.
The filling pharmacy has a corresponding responsibility to ensure that the prescription is valid.
Often, individual state laws outline what defines a valid patient-doctor relationship. Canada is home to dozens of licensed Internet pharmacies, many of which sell their lower-cost prescription drugs to U. In the United States , there has been a push to legalize the importation of medications from Canada and other countries, in order to reduce consumer costs.
While in most cases importation of prescription medications violates Food and Drug Administration FDA regulations and federal laws, enforcement is generally targeted at international drug suppliers, rather than consumers.
There is no known case of any U. Main article: Veterinary pharmacy Veterinary pharmacies, sometimes called animal pharmacies, may fall in the category of hospital pharmacy, retail pharmacy or mail-order pharmacy.
Veterinary pharmacies stock different varieties and different strengths of medications to fulfill the pharmaceutical needs of animals.
Because the needs of animals, as well as the regulations on veterinary medicine , are often very different from those related to people, veterinary pharmacy is often kept separate from regular pharmacies.
Main article: Nuclear pharmacy Nuclear pharmacy focuses on preparing radioactive materials for diagnostic tests and for treating certain diseases. Nuclear pharmacists undergo additional training specific to handling radioactive materials, and unlike in community and hospital pharmacies, nuclear pharmacists typically do not interact directly with patients. Military pharmacy[ edit ] Military pharmacy is an entirely different working environment due to the fact that technicians perform most duties[ example needed ] that in a civilian sector would be illegal.
Pharmacy informaticists work in many practice areas of pharmacy, however, they may also work in information technology departments or for healthcare information technology vendor companies.
As a practice area and specialist domain, pharmacy informatics is growing quickly to meet the needs of major national and international patient information projects and health system interoperability goals. Pharmacists in this area are trained to participate in medication management system development, deployment and optimization.
