Summary

Drug misuse is a major challenge for health professionals in the 21st century, and community pharmacy holds a key place in the management of prescribed medication, the provision of health education and promotion messages to drug users. Two decades ago there would have been no need for a book to describe such the role of community pharmacy; however, since more people are injecting drugs now and HIV is on the rise, community pharmacists have found their services in higher demand. The quality practice of tomorrow hinges on trained and competent practitioners working in a variety of community pharmacy settings. Drug Misuse and Community Pharmacy explains the historical, research and practical aspects. Experts use a practical and evidence-based approach to educate students of pharmacy, pre-registration pharmacists, community pharmacists working with drug users and anyone involved in developing and managing primary healthcare for drug misusers.
