It has thirteen chapters covering the range of quantitative, qualitative, action research and mixed methods as well as management theories underpinning change in pharmacy practice. "Pharmacy Practice Research Methods" examines the evidence and impact as well as explores the future.
Pharmacy practice is rapidly transforming and as such it is to be adaptable as student and academic researchers and to not only understand techniques and methodologies, but as champions to nurture the field. There is a literature in this area but few integrated texts which cover the wide range of pharmacy practice including methodologies, evidence, practice and policy. This book provides a solid foundation for exploring these phenomenon further, and is expected to serve as a valuable resource for academics, students, policy makers and professional organisations.
