Written and edited by a well-respected team of experts, this new edition has been fully revised and updated and now features new chapters including:
  • patient safety and pharmacovigilance
  • professionalism and ethics

The inclusion of case studies, sample test questions and learning objectives makes this an invaluable tool for students. Whether it is a course offering an introduction to the health care environment, or about managing and finance in the US health care delivery system, this is an essential textbook. It is also a helpful reference for practicing pharmacists and pharmacy organizations and societies.
