At last – a South African pharmapedia that puts medicines, medical devices, and pharmacy compliance know-how at your fingertips.
Juta’s Pharmapedia is an online research solution bringing together the complex array of policy, legislation, regulations and guideline documentation, with authored explanatory text, required to achieve regulatory compliance. This comprehensive single-reference resource of medicine, medical device/IVD and pharmacy regulation will empower the practitioner to make sense of medicines regulation and pharmacy practice.
Juta’s Pharmapedia spans all aspects of the control of registration, manufacture or distribution of medicines, medical devices and scheduled substances. Authored ‘Praxis Notes’ address licensing, registration, importing and exporting, prescribing and dispensing, promotion, advertising and the sale, generic substitution, recall or destruction of health products, manufacturing and wholesaling, and pharmacy best practices. The ’Praxis Notes’ gather together industry guidelines to clarify the implementation of legislation and compliance requirements. These guidelines are collated and cross-referenced under subject headings, processes and themes for ease of use. Detailed indexing and attention to cross-referencing of related issues in the Medicines Act and Pharmacy Act as well as other legislation important to health professionals, takes Juta’s Pharmapedia from a compulsory text book to an empowering toolkit.
