Clinical Pharmacy Pocket Companion is an A-Z pocket book containing concise and practical pharmaceutical information for clinical pharmacists. It provides the user with a range of tools, suggestions and advice to assist in the provision of pharmaceutical care.

Bringing together disparate information not easily found in other reference sources, this pocket book deals with obscure problems as well as routine queries arising from:
