About this title

Synopsis:

A book for today’s student of pharmacy as well as the pharmacy professional!

There were several surveys and conferences on pharmacy during the twentieth century, but few had the impact of the Millis Study Commission on Pharmacy. The Millis Study Commission on Pharmacy: A Road Map to a Profession's Future is an insightful look at the report and its effects on today’s pharmacy profession. The book chronicles the educational surveys of the twentieth century, reviews the study’s impact on the profession, and then presents Pharmacists for the Future, the actual Millis Study Commission’s 1975 report. This source provides a multi-perspective look at pharmacy, its place in society, and its direction for the future.

The Millis Commission is seen as the turning point for pharmacy as a profession, calling for a shift in focus from being product centered to being patient centered. One reason the study has remained so effectual was that the study commission’s views came from a membership that included not only pharmacy professionals but also educators and other health professionals who provided a depth of knowledge beyond, but still interconnected with, pharmacy. The Millis Study Commission on Pharmacy: A Road Map to a Profession's Future reviews pharmacy’s forces of change, educational recommendations, and credentialing issues past and present. The book also traces the Minnesota Program and Kellogg Program, direct applications of the study’s suggestions. Helpful tables and a thorough bibliography are included to provide full clarity of thought.

The Millis Study Commission on Pharmacy: A Road Map to a Profession's Future discusses:

  • the history of pharmacy in the twentieth century
  • differences between other studies and the Millis study
  • the Health Manpower Act of 1968
  • evolving educational standards and recommendations
  • changing roles of pharmacists
  • pharmacist activities beyond distribution
  • the future of pharmacy

The Millis Study Commission on Pharmacy: A Road Map to a Profession's Future is an essential resource for educators, graduate students, pharmaceutical professionals, pharmacists, health professionals, and anyone interested in the history of pharmacy.
