practical questions such as: How do I manage my own professional
development? What is the best way of training my support staff? How do I
motivate the pharmacy team? What are the practical issues in setting
up an MUR service? How do I offer a medicines management service to
residential care homes? How do I work effectively with the primary care
team? How do I promote the value of pharmacy services? Case studies
and exercises in each chapter include structured questions, which
encourage the reader to consolidate the information provided and apply
their knowledge to a typical community pharmacy scenario."Community

pharmacists, pharmacy undergraduates and pre-registration graduates,
providing access to a spectrum of relevant information in an easily
digestible form.
