Full course description
Pharmacist Pharmacy Law:
The practice of pharmacy in most states is declared a health care professional practice affecting the public health, safety and welfare. Pharmacy practice is a dynamic patient-oriented health service that applies a scientific body of knowledge to improve and promote patient health by means of appropriate drug use, drug-related therapy, and communication for clinical and consultative purposes. A pharmacist licensed to practice pharmacy by the state regulatory agency has the duty to use that degree of care, skill, diligence and professional judgment that is exercised by an ordinarily careful pharmacist in the same or similar circumstances.
This course will provide an overview of the qualifications, responsibilities, and expectations of the Pharmacist. Using several case study examples, you will have a better understanding on why all pharmacy personnel must be aware of and follow of all federal and state laws.
The role of the Pharmacist varies from state to state, depending on the rules and statutes in each state. It is the responsibility of the Pharmacist to be knowledgeable and follow all federal and state pharmacy laws in the state(s) in which they practice.
