Pharmacists for the Future: The Report of the Study Commission on Pharmacy.
American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, Bethesda, MD.
The Study Commission on Pharmacy, a group of eleven individuals representing diverse educational and professional backgrounds, devoted over two years to the examination of the practice of pharmacy as an integral part of the health service system and of pharmacy education. This investigation was undertaken because of concern about criticism of the health services in general and of drug-related services within and outside of the pharmacy profession. The report describes the science of pharmacy and profiles American pharmacists, and considers these aspects of the profession: the public interest, economics, pharmacy's information system, forces of change in the health services, forces of change internal to pharmacy, the future, objectives of pharmacy education, responsibilities of schools of pharmacy, the content and environment of pharmacy education, and credentials. A list of eighty consultants to the Study Commission is appended. (MSE)
