MEDISCA Australia | Hormone Restoration Therapy - Compounding Laboratory Training | 27 NOV 2023
Unlike other biological systems, the endocrine system is particularly individualized with notable differences in hormonal set points that vary from person to person; what may be normal for one may be abnormal for another. Consequently, we see a high demand for personalised hormone restoration therapeutic options that are tailored to individual biological needs. This includes, but is not limited to, alterations in dosage strength, customised pharmaceutical combinations, and the use of dosage forms therapeutically beneficial to the niche area of hormone restoration, notably transdermal creams and gels, oral troches, and slow-release capsules.
In this laboratory course, participants will learn how to optimize the efficiency and quality of their compounded hormone preparations by practicing novel compounding techniques and implementing innovative technologies and equipment.
Estradiol 0.4 mg/mL, Estriol 0.6 mg/mL Topical Cream*
