Public Health in Pharmacy Practice: A Casebook is a collaboration of over thirty-five experts in public health pharmacy. The twenty-one chapters cover a broad array of topics relevant to pharmacy applications of public health: cross-cultural care, health literacy and disparities, infectious disease, health promotion and disease prevention, medication safety, women’s and rural health and more. Each chapter contains learning objectives and an introduction to the topic, followed by a case and questions. The chapter closes with commentary from the authors and patient-oriented considerations for the topic at hand.

An instructor edition with example answers to case questions can be viewed here (instructor log in required).
