Product details

It is an absolute necessity for pharmacy students and practicing pharmacists to have a proper knowledge of the law surrounding their area of expertise.

An overview of the relevant legislation is therefore imperative. Pharmacy Law in South Africa is a much needed resource, providing an explanation behind the logic, construct and application of the legislation that is applicable to pharmacists. Andrew Gray, Lorraine Osman, Yousuf.A.Vawda and various other contributing authors have compiled a text book which provides €œa rich source of materials, including real-world application in the form of jurisprudence.€? The current PSSA Pharmacy Law Compendium published by LexisNexis, contains the text of the law only, but not an explanation of its logic, construct and application. Pharmacy Law in South Africa fills this critical gap.

Pharmacy Law in South Africa a Practitioner's Handbook will be of use to lecturers in Pharmacy Law, Ethics and Pharmacy Practice, practicing pharmacists, pharmacy interns, community service pharmacists and students. Pharmacy technicians will also benefit from this book.

The publication will be available end of November.
