Contemporary Compounding Intensive CE

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Class Overview
Non-sterile compounded medications often play an extremely important role in the quality
of patient care and prescribers have become increasingly aware of the benefits that customized medications offer.
The pharmacist and pharmacy technician must have a strong foundation on how to prepare these products. Technology has provided the equipment and
techniques necessary to compound effectively and accurately. To prepare participants to meet the needs of patients, we have designed a program that will provide the pharmacist and technician the knowledge and skills to prepare the highest quality of compounded
medications and services. As part of the course, attendees will receive a template of a policy and procedure manual.

Objectives for Pharmacists and PharmacyTechnicians
• Demonstrate proficiency in the use of the electronic balance, hot plate/stirrer, hand-held
blender, Unguator, ointment mill, capsule machine, powder blender, homogenizer, and
general laboratory processes, devices, and equipment.
• Demonstrate proficiency in the formulation, compounding, packaging and dispensing of:
• liquid dosage forms (general, oral and topical)
• powder dosage forms (oral and topical)
• cream, gel and ointment dosage forms (topical, transdermal and vaginal)
• troche dosage forms
• stick (lip balm) dosage forms
• suppository dosage forms (rectal and vaginal)
• State the importance of quality control and quality assurance procedures.
• Discuss pertinent professional, state, and federal compounding laws and regulations.
• Discuss the importance and availability of compounding references and resources.

To earn CE credit, attendees will be required
to actively participate in the entire session,

program. Partial credit will not be given.
