Intended audience

    • Pharmacists
    • Pharmacy Technicians
    • Pharmacy Educators
    • Pharmacy Students

    Learning Objectives


    1. Translate audiovisual learning into demonstrated techniques in compounding
    2. Relate a technique to its impact on qualitative and quantitative assessment outcomes
    3. Select and assemble techniques into an appropriate order of operation for a dosage form
    4. Prepare various solid, semisolid and liquid dosage forms


    It has been demonstrated through scientific study that visual observation interspersed with practice, as compared to visual observation alone, results in a higher level of learning of motor skills and longer retention. We strongly encourage program participants with access to a compounding facility, to combine observational learning from the videos with hands-on practice sessions.1
