A Practical Guide to Contemporary Pharmacy Practice and Compounding is your hands-on, step-by-step guide to receiving and filling prescription drug orders as well as a comprehensive look at the preparation of sterile and non-sterile extemporaneously compounded preparations. This edition is meticulously updated to include the latest practice guidelines and standards, as well as a detailed discussion of the Drug Quality and Security Act (DQSA) of 2013. In addition, it offers a wealth of guidance on processing prescriptions, avoiding dangerous medication and labeling errors, counseling patients and caregivers, and much more – giving you all the knowledge you need to succeed on your exams and safely carry out the practice of pharmacy.
  • Features significant revisions to address the impact of new federal laws/regulations on pharmacy practice.
  • Includes meticulous updates reflecting the latest advances in “formulation science.”
  • Includes an expanded list of definitions addressing the interchangeable terminologies that arise due to the emergence of interprofessional education and practice.
  • Offers an expanded discussion on avoiding medication and labeling errors, patient counseling at hospital discharge, sterile dosage form preparation, and much more.
  • Includes updated information about newly approved excipients and manufacturers.
  • Includes a new section on the passage of the DQSA, which amended the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, making a distinction between 503A compounding pharmacies, the traditional prescription-based compounding pharmacies, and 503B outsourcing facilities.
