PMPR 4283 - Pharmacy Law and Ethics

(3 credits)
This course consists of a study of federal and state pharmacy, drug, and related laws. Through self-study, lecture, and case studies, students learn the substance of these laws and their application to pharmacy practice. Discussion of societal and health care system issues, such as abortion and the right to die, demonstrates the broader societal role of the pharmacist. In light of continuing expansion of the pharmacist’s role in the delivery of healthcare services, attention is given to ethical and legal issues surrounding direct patient care services, including an examination of professional liability (civil, criminal, and disciplinary). While the importance of the above issues has grown significantly in very recent years, these issues have not displaced the need to study the expansive body of traditional pharmacy and drug law.
