The American Journal of Health-System Pharmacists just published a recent 4 star review from Doody’s Review Service for Pharmacy Management, Leadership, Marketing, and Finance, Second Edition by Marie A. Chisholm-Burns, PharmD, MPH, FCCP, FASHP, Allison M. Vaillancourt, PhD, SPHR, and Marv Shepherd, PhD, MS, RPh.
Take a look at some excerpts from reviewer Frank Dahl, BA, BS, MS, from Temple University School of Pharmacy,
“This book has a definite place in the education and training of future pharmacists, covering material that is frequently omitted in current pharmacy [curricula], but is absolutely essential in all areas of pharmacy practice. It is appropriate for basic pharmacy education, the training of first-year pharmacy residents, second-year pharmacy residents specializing in pharmacy administration, as well as for use in graduate programs in pharmacy administration.
This book covers the knowledge and skills needed to develop students into pharmacy leaders. It also details operational and financial management tools so critical in a pharmacy organization. It addresses a topic frequently omitted in books of this type: planning. This book is an excellent presentation of strategic planning, justification and planning for services, and the development of clinical services. The well-done graphs, charts, and tables complement and emphasize the text.
This is a thorough and relevant collection of pharmacy administration topics that one usually has to seek out in multiple sources. As an experienced hospital pharmacy administrator, I found many chapters that I can benefit from and that I can use in the training of pharmacy students and pharmacy residents. Well done!”
