Patient-centered care is at the heart of today's pharmacy practice, and ASHP's Patient-Centered Care for Pharmacists gets to the heart of the subject. Formerly Developing Clinical Practice Skills for Pharmacists, this revised resource has been redeveloped to compliment the changing emphasis in pharmacy practice to patient-centered care and the contemporary context of healthcare delivery. To understand and treat the whole person and learn to use a realistic approach to time and resources, students must connect their drug science knowledge to actual practice. Useful in multiple courses in multiple levels, Patient Centered Care for Pharmacists is a valuable resource that gives students and teachers alike more for their money. In P1, P2, and P3 courses in areas from clinical skills to communications, students can follow realistic case studies through typical processes to witness patient centered care in action. Strong, well-developed case studies provide insight into today's vital topics: Cultural differences among patients Documentation and health records Patient care plan development Effective patient communicationshow more

Review quote

"Patient-Centered Care for PharmacistsBy Kimberly Galt, PharmD, PhD, RPh, FASHP and Michale A. Galt, MS, RPh, FASHP"MedInfoNow: Doody s Review Services / April 2012 [REVIEWER'S EXPERT OPINION]Jill Suzanne Bates, PharmD, MS(University of North Carolina Hospitals) **Description**This basic introduction to the concept of pharmaceutical care and how to provideit is an update and revision of a 2006 publication, "Developing ClinicalPractice Skills for Pharmacists." **Purpose**The author states the purpose is to provide a basic tool to teach the concepts of patient-centered skills and their application in a stepwise fashion. This is necessary to assist pharmacists across the profession in gaining the skills needed to provide direct patient care. **Audience**The book is written for a general pharmacy audience -- anyone in pharmacy at anylevel who is looking to build basic skills in the area of providing pharmaceutical care or direct patient care. Both authors are experienced pharmacists who at points in their careers have held positions which involved providing direct patient care. **Features**Beginning the book is an overview of the concept of direct patient care and various aspects of this approach that assumes readers do not have any previous knowledge of this topic. The book then describes how to apply these concepts. The refreshing aspect of this book is the use of examples that span a variety of different practice settings, including many inpatient examples. Depictions of pharmacists providing direct patient care in this practice setting are sparse in the current pharmacy literature, which tends to focus heavily on ambulatory pharmacy care. The book has a lot of illustrative examples of documentation and recordkeeping, which is helpful for extrapolating to one's own practice. **Assessment**This is a useful book to begin learning about the concepts of pharmaceutical care and how to apply these concepts to practice. It addresses concepts similar to those discussed in "Pharmaceutical Care Practice: The Clinician's Guide," 2nd edition, Cipolle et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2004.). The preface states that this revision includes a case series addition at the end of each chapter. Various case examples are also inserted into the chapters, which I found to be a distraction. Although it appears they were inserted to emphasize key points, they did not correlate with what I thought were the key points and they were not placed where I would have expected. Nevertheless, the case series at the ends of the chapters are helpful, particularly because they span a variety of practice settings and readers can look for an example that is commensurate with their practice setting. Finally, the title does not truly describe the scope and intent of the book. From the title, I expected the main focus would be on the interpersonal nature of the pharmacist-patient relationship. Although the book does discuss this concept in detail, the main focus appears to be on how to provide pharmaceutical care. It is intended to build skills, and readers would not fully appreciate that based on the title. ----------------------------------------------------------- Weighted Numerical Score: 71 - 3 Stars--Jill Suzanne Bates, PharmD, MS(University of North Carolina Hospitals)"MedInfoNow: Doody Review Services" (04/01/2012)"show more
