About this Textbook

This book contains essential knowledge on the preparation, control, logistics, dispensing and use of medicines. It features chapters written by experienced pharmacists working in hospitals and academia throughout Europe, complete with practical examples as well as information on current EU-legislation.

From prescription to production, from usage instructions to procurement and the impact of medicines on the environment, the book provides step-by-step coverage that will help a wide range of readers. It offers product knowledge for all pharmacists working directly with patients and it will enable them to make the appropriate medicine available, to store medicines properly, to adapt medicines if necessary and to dispense medicines with the appropriate information to inform patients and caregivers about product care and how to maintain their quality. This basic knowledge will also be of help to industrial pharmacists to remind and focus them on the application of the medicines manufactured.

The basic and practical knowledge on the design, preparation and quality management of medicines can directly be applied by the pharmacists whose main duty is production in community and hospital pharmacies and industries. Undergraduate as well as graduate pharmacy students will find knowledge and backgrounds in a fully coherent way and fully supported with examples.

Reviews

“Written by experienced pharmacists working in hospitals and academia throughout Europe, Practical Pharmaceutics is complete with practical examples and information on current European Union legislation. … This book is an essential must-have for all medicine preparation and quality control laboratories. All pharmacists should know it exists and what information it contains.” (J. W. Foppe van Mil, International Journal of Clinical Pharmacy, Vol. 38, June, 2016)

“Basic knowledge merges with practical examples … . Students and pharmacists working in the preparation of medicines therefore are addressed equally. But the clinically active pharmacist also requires product knowledge for answering questions about the selection or customizing of medicines and will gladly use this book … .” (Translated from German, Sylvia Obermeier, Krankenhauspharmazie, Vol. 37 (7), 2016)

“It's only a matter of time before Practical Pharmaceutics … will become an integral part of the university and pharmaceutical libraries. In the Czech environment, this comprehensive textbook has long lacked.” (Translated from Czech, Czech Tribuna Lékařů, May, 2016)

“The text is clear and concise and it favours practical purposes. The work has the merit of allowing the sharing and experience of local pharmacists and European hospitals in order to provide common cultural basis to those who operate in this sector.” (Translated from Italian, Francesca Selmin Ph. D., Sifap - Societa Italiana Farmacisti Preparatori, FarmaciaVirtuale.it, February, 2016)


“A resource written for practitioners by practitioners makes this textbook the essential companion for any pharmacist working or interested in production. Having all of the information in one resource makes perfect use of available time in the busy daily schedule of the production pharmacist.” (Joan Peppard, EAHP’s President, Ireland)

“The production of medicines is the historical root of our profession. For all patients, but especially children, hospital pharmacists need high levels of competency in pharmaceutical technology in order to fulfil their clinical and ethical commitment. This book provides not only a much-needed update, but is an excellent reference source to assist our daily work.” (Roberto Frontini, Immediate Past EAHP’s President and Board Advisor, Germany)

“With the advent of precision medicine this book provides the indispensable knowledge base for the production of high quality pharmaceutical preparations. A very timely publication!” (Daan J.A. Crommelin, Professor emeritus pharmaceutical technology and biopharmaceutics, The Netherlands)
