This Casebook is a compilation of cases used in the Social Administrative Sciences classroom at Pacific University School of Pharmacy to help you (the student pharmacist) apply critical thinking, problem solving, and decision-making to common administrative-related challenges seen in pharmacies. These cases do not contain a clinical pharmacy component, in order to focus on the many other important and often overlooked administrative tasks a pharmacist is likely to encounter in their day-to-day work.
This book is similar to a clinical casebook, where it is expected that the focus is on the process of solving the case, not necessarily finding a “right” answer. The cases in this book provide real-world scenarios and can be applied to administrative issues that may arise in pharmacy practice. You as the student pharmacist are tasked with working through the scenario to develop a solution to the problem presented. This book provides a wonderful starting point for these types of leadership and administrative discussions.
