Summary

With a shift toward problem-based learning and critical thinking in many health science fields, professional pharmacy training faces a shift in focus as well. Although the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) has recently suggested guidelines for problem solving to be better integrated into pharmacy curriculum, pharmacy books currently available either address this material inadequately or lack it completely. Theory and Practice of Contemporary Pharmaceutics addresses this problem by challenging pharmacy students to think critically in preparation for situations that arise in clinical practice.

This book offers a wealth of up-to-date information, organized in a logical sequence, corresponding to the art and science required for formulators in industry and dispensing pharmacists in the community. It breaks down the subject to its simplest form and includes numerous examples, case studies, and problems. In addition to presenting basic scientific principles, each chapter includes a self-evaluation tutorial designed to help you evaluate your understanding of the subject matter, numerical problems that provide practice in finding mathematical solutions, and case studies that measure your overall grasp of the subject matter by challenging you to craft a plausible solution to a real-life scenario using the concepts presented in that chapter.

Written by authors selected from academia, industry, and regulatory agencies, the book presents an objective and balanced view of pharmaceutical science and its application. The authors' insights are extremely helpful to pharmacy students as well as practicing pharmacists involved in the development and/or dispensation of existing and new generation biotechnology-based drug products. This simplified and user-friendly book will present pharmaceutics in a way that it has never been presented before and will help prepare students and pharmacists for the competitive and challenging nature of the professional market.
