Pharmaceutical Press announces new publication on Pharmacy and Medicines Law
Pharmaceutical Press, the publishing division of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS), is pleased to announce the publication of Pharmacy and Medicines Law in Ireland. This unique new reference launches in March 2011.
Opening with a detailed account of the historical development of Irish pharmacy and medicines law, this practical text covers all aspects of current pharmacy and medicines law in Ireland, including the landmark Pharmacy Act of 2007. It also addresses key topics such as the pharmacy disciplinary system, liability of pharmacists in negligence and defective products and the advertising of medicinal products.
Commenting on the new publication, Pharmaceutical Press Publisher Lindsey Fountain said, "We've had great demand for a product that offers this level of detail in respect to pharmacy and medicines law in Ireland and we are happy to be able to meet this need for our customers. The addition of Pharmacy and Medicines Law in Ireland to the Pharmaceutical Press portfolio will be an invaluable asset to healthcare professionals."
Although aimed primarily at Irish pharmacists, pharmacy students and those coming to practise in Ireland from other countries, this new text will be a valuable reference source for lawyers, government bodies and anyone who wants to know more about the regulatory framework for pharmacists and medicinal products in Ireland.
"We are both delighted to have had the opportunity to collaborate with many pharmacy and legal colleagues in Ireland in writing this new book" said Peter Weedle, one of the book's editors and former chairman of the Registration Committee of the PSI. "We believe this new title comprehensively addresses the different acts, regulations and rules that apply to pharmacy practice in Ireland." Co-editor, Leonie Clarke, commented "Given the growing complexity of Irish pharmacy and medicines law in recent years, a book of this type is long overdue and we are delighted that our collaboration with the Pharmaceutical Press has made it possible."
