Interpersonal Communication in Pharmaceutical Care shows readers how to communicate better with patrons and patients in hospital and retail pharmacy locations. Author Helen Meldrum, who has been teaching interpersonal skills to pharmacy students and practitioners since the early 1980s, uses actual scenarios to demonstrate basic communication skills. These “real life” examples illustrate communication problems from the perspectives of pharmacy workers and their subsequent efforts to improve the lines of communication with patrons. Yet the case studies do more than depict actual dialogue between pharmacists and their customers and patients; they address improved communication between co-workers, a vital aspect of providing excellent pharmacy practice. Throughout Interpersonal Communication in Pharmaceutical Care, the reader finds how important it is to replace negative communication with more effective choices. These conversations prepare readers to act--not react--when faced with difficult persons or situations in pharmacy settings. Interpersonal Communication in Pharmaceutical Care is a resource of how to improve communication in pharmacy practice. Pharmacists who analyze the scenarios in this book can more readily identify effective responses to challenging situations in hospital and retail practice. The interpersonal skills section covers such fundamentals as: Basic speaking and listening skills Responsible assertive communication skills Counseling skills Interprofessional problem-solving skills Conflict management skills Collaborative communication skills Truly a unique book due to its practical nature, Interpersonal Communication in Pharmaceutical Care is appropriate for all pharmacy practitioners from the level of technician through supervisor. Because the cases featured are transcripts of actual interactions between pharmacists, customers, and co-workers, readers can identify with the situations and begin to effectively change their communication methods with satisfactory results--for the patron or patient and the pharmacist.

Die Wissenschaft hat in den letzten Jahrzehnten vieles über den Haufen geworfen, was wir darüber zu wissen glaubten, wie das Gehirn Informationen aufnimmt und verarbeitet. Fest steht: Wir lernen von Geburt an schnell, effizient und automatisch. Weil wir diesen Vorgang unbedingt systematisieren wollen, betrachten wir Vergessen, Schlafen und Tagträumen als hinderlich. Dabei sind sie wertvolle Hilfsmittel, die den Eigenarten unseres Gehirns Rechnung tragen. Benedict Carey erklärt, mit welchen Methoden wir uns Stoffe leichter einprägen und unser problemlösendes Denken verbessern können und wie wir die Potenziale des Unbewussten möglichst effizient nutzen – lernen, ohne nachzudenken. Nebenbei erfahren wir, dass Ablenkung zu Unrecht verteufelt wird, Wiederholung keineswegs immer weiterhilft und es sinnvoll ist, sich zu Themen testen zu lassen, über die man noch gar nichts weiß. Ein äußerst unterhaltsam geschriebenes Buch voller überraschender Erkenntnisse, das zeigt: Lernen muss keine Qual sein.
