An ideal study/practice companion!

The Dictionary of Pharmacy is the only English-language reference currently available that provides a comprehensive list of terms of special importance to pharmacy students, educators, and practitioners. This reliable, time-saving volume will serve anyone working in or studying the pharmaceutical sciences. The Dictionary of Pharmacy is a valuable, handy resource that you’ll refer to again and again.

Compiled by a cast of educators from leading pharmacy schools headed by Dennis B. Worthen (author of Pharmacy in World War II, co-author of Pharmaceutical Education in the Queen City: 150 Years of Service 1850-2000, and former Director of Pharmacy Affairs for Procter & Gamble), this well-organized guide defines all of the jargon surrounding this ever-evolving field. In addition to a complete A-Z listing of definitions, you’ll find:
  • abbreviations
  • Latin terms
  • weights and measures
  • practice standards
  • the periodic table
  • the American Pharmacists Association’s Code of Ethics and Principles of Practice for Pharmaceutical Care
  • the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy’s Pledge of Professionalism and Pharmacist’s Oath
  • lists of professional associations and organizations
  • lists of colleges of pharmacy in the United States and schools of pharmacy (and their faculties) in Canada
From a- and a priori to zwitterion and zymogen, the Dictionary of Pharmacy covers the bases. With this one-of-a-kind study/practice companion, you—and your students—need never be stymied by pharmaceutical terminology again.
