This textbook provides students with an understanding of business processes used, and how those processes impact their practice of pharmacy in providing patient care.
It provides a foundation of how to manage in an environment that is focused on "the business of healthcare." For pharmacists who prefer not to move into management positions, the book explains how and why business decisions are made relative to practice.

Written in an easy-to-use and understandable form, the book focuses on the basics of good business practice. Special features include cases that allow students to apply what they have learned in the chapters to business situations within the context of various practice settings.
