Founded in 1852, the American Pharmacists Association (APhA, previously known as the American Pharmaceutical Association) is the first-established professional society of pharmacists in the United States. It is the largest association of pharmacists in the United States with over 62,000 members and is the only organization advancing the entire pharmacy profession. APhA leads the profession and equips pharmacists for their role as medication experts in team-based, patient-centered care by providing opportunities for professional development, recognition, differentiation, and leadership and disseminating timely relevant information and state-of-the-art tools and resources through its publishing arm. Covering a range of topics to support professional development and delivery of outstanding patient care, APhA publishes between 10 and 15 titles each year, which are available in print or digital formats.
Since 1993, APhA has sent us 166 Pharmacy titles. Over the years, 98 of those books have been reviewed with four currently out for review. Doody’s Core Titles 2022 features two APhA titles: Medication Errors, 2nd Edition, Cohen (2007) and Handbook of Nonprescription Drugs: An Interactive Approach to Self-Care, 20th Edition, Krinsky et al. (2021).
