Application of this knowledge in both hospital and community pharmacy settings is explored.

CSA540 Pharmacy Administration and Management

Provides students with (a) sufficient fundamental knowledge to allow them to appreciate the complexities of managing pharmacy organisations (including private practice and hospital pharmacies) and of the human and financial and material resources which must be managed so that a pharmacy can offer a valuable service at an appropriate cost; and (b) an understanding of the way in which complex organisations such as universities, hospitals and professional associations are structured and the processes through which change occurs in such organisations and the means by which the responsible individuals interact with Government and other external decision makers.
