MEDISCA Australia | The Science of Pharmaceutical Compounding: Non-Sterile Training Lab | 28-29 Mar 2021

Mascot, NSW AU
March 28, 2021 to March 29, 2021

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION

The Practice-based Activity will provide compounding pharmacists and technicians with the competency to prepare current and viable pharmacotherapeutic non-sterile dosage forms. Unique concepts will be taught facilitating a decision-making process the pharmacist and technician can apply in their day-to-day practice.

Consideration will be given to meeting the physician’s prescription and patient-specific need, compliance-related solutions, medical necessity, and legal and regulatory guidelines. A significant emphasis will be placed on quality assurance and quality control as it relates to dosage form design, pharmaceutical calculations and the validation of preparatory procedures that are part of Master Formulation Records.

Practical techniques and technology-related applications are developed through hands-on experience in a compounding laboratory environment where pharmacists and technicians will be trained in all aspects of non-sterile preparatory procedures. Pharmacists and technicians have the opportunity to develop important aspects of a business development and marketing plan.
