In recent years there has been increasing awareness of the demands that ill-health places on national resources. As a consequence, there has been a greater emphasis placed on prevention of illness, and an encouragement of health promotion. Pharmacists, since they regularly come into contact with both healthy and sick members of the public, are thus ideally placed to advise and influence people to lead healthy lifestyles and thus possibly prevent future illness. The Handbook of Pharmacy Health Education contains a wealth of information that the health professional, and particularly the pharmacist, can utilise in promoting healthy living. This new edition of the Handbook has been extensively revised by a team of health professionals and reflects changes in practice, therapeutics, and health promotion. An additional new chapter on companion animals and human health has also been included. The content of the book reflects the continuing changes in the skills required for successful pharmacy practice, and emphasizes the need for a basic knowledge of both specific illnesses and of general health issues. This is an essential handbook for modern pharmacists who, while remaining specialists in drug knowledge, are continuing to develop their role as vital members of today's health-care team.

This revised and updated edition of the Handbook of Pharmacy Healthcare provides a comprehensive account of a wide range of diseases for which medicinal treatment may be indicated. The book outlines the most appropriate means by which the pharmacist can impart information and advice, emphasising the ‘patient’ rather than the ‘drug-related’ aspects of pharmacy. Part A provides a concise summary of the causes, symptoms and treatment of different diseases. Part B covers the management of specific patient groups and includes an expanded directory of professional and self-help organisations. New chapters are included on pregnancy and diagnostic tests. Part C is a reference guide to the possible causes of certain symptoms. Part D contains a comprehensive glossary of medical terms. This is an essential handbook for modern pharmacists who, while remaining specialists in drug knowledge, are continuing to develop their broader role as key members of the healthcare team.
