Ensuring competency in maths skills is a fundamental part of pharmacy education as accurate pharmaceutical calculations are crucial to the safe and effective use of drugs. This text combines both the scientific calculations underpinning dosage forms with calculations relating to pharmacy practice in a single resource.
An innovative student-centred approach is taken throughout the text, with numerous worked examples and self-test questions to stimulate self-directed learning. Frequent case studies highlight the importance of maths to pharmacy, and help students to make that crucial connection between theory and practice, while key take-home messages for each section are summarised in concise learning-point boxes.
Written by leading academics with a wealth of experience in pharmacy education Maths Skills for Pharmacy is the ideal textbook for the subject.
