How to Develop a Business Plan for Pharmacy Services

The latest edition of ACCP’s How to Develop a Business Plan for Pharmacy Services is now available with new online resources and more sample business plans to assist pharmacy clinicians, managers, and leaders in planning for new or enhanced pharmacy services. Authors Glen Schumock and JoAnn Stubbings impart their considerable expertise on the topic in this easy-to-read but informative and practical book.

  • An electronic version of the chapter workbook questions
  • A business plan template the reader can use for writing his or her own business plan
  • An Excel program for developing financial statements for the proposed business
