These sizes are only guidelines to approximate sizing, and should not be used in order to design an actual book or magazine. • Performance measurement, therefore, is this mechanism. The Institute of Medicine recently called for “a coherent, robust, integrated performance measurement system that is purposeful, comprehensive, effi cient, and transparent.”3 The American health care system is lurching towards the development of such a system: this paper.

Pharmacy calculations, measurements and conversions are essential functions for the pharmaceutical professional. The system of pharmaceutical measurements involves various calculations and conversions of the formulation, ingredients and components of a medication dosage. Many pharmacy calculations use different methods of measurements.
