Pharmacy in Public Health focuses on the important topics in public health relevant to all pharmacists.

The role of pharmacists in improving the general health of the public is developing rapidly, directed by changes to health policy in the UK and elsewhere. Often the focus of the pharmacist is on individual patients. However the importance of pharmacy practice in population health should not be underestimated.

Case studies are used throughout the book to illustrate how public health initiatives can be implemented in different pharmacy sectors. Specific key concepts are outlined, including:
  • determinants of health
  • pharmacy within public health: UK and international perspective
  • needs assessment and public involvement
  • evidence-based delivery
  • risks and benefits
  • health education opportunities
  • health protection
  • developing pharmacy services and preventing disease
  • medicines management

This accessible and comprehensive book provides the thorough understanding of this discipline that will be needed for practising pharmacists and students to develop into effective public health practitioners.
