Essential Elements of Prescription Hormone Compounding

Compounding hormone therapies and formulations presents particular issues and challenges to the compounding pharmacist. This activity will provide compounding pharmacists with the opportunity to enhance their competency as it relates to the many therapeutic options used in hormone therapies. Having been presented with a prescription indicating a need for a compounded medication, the participating pharmacist will use uniquely designed patient assessment tools, select appropriate delivery systems for the specific hormones and nutritional supplements prescribed, and then monitor patient progress. Following this process the participant will have learned about the physiologic features of the hormone systems in the body, how to conduct a patient needs analysis, and then work with physicians to provide pharmacist expertise with respect to the therapeutic, nutritional supplementation, and lifestyle and behavior modification options available to the physician and patient. Finally, participants will apply monitoring tools and strategies to maintain patient compliance with prescribed therapeutic initiatives. Clinical case scenarios will be discussed and clinical findings recorded in a formal manner for purposes of confidential communication, record keeping, and statistical analysis.



Testimonials:


 

Well put-together seminars on hormones. The facilitators approach hormones from a truly holistic perspective, incorporating natural supplements, nutraceuticals, diet, and vitamins along with hormones to achieve the best results for the patient.

Barbara Rush
Physician, California

I have attended numerous other hormone/BHRT conferences and LP3 Network’s is by far the best I've seen. I have never seen such a well-laid-out conference with defined learning goals and a start-to-finish approach with concrete examples and working plans. I highly recommended my Naturopathic Doctor colleagues and pharmacists to attend.

Kim Bretz
Naturopathic Doctor, Ontario

Taking the Hormone Management course has radically changed and enhanced my pharmacy practice. I am a prescribing pharmacist and I have created positive relationships with physicians who refer their patients to me for review and recommendations on oral and transdermal preparations. I provide the physician with a report of my recommendations and also create an individualized preparation for the patient. The patient will return to my pharmacy for follow-up and possible adjustments. My network of referring physicians is growing and based on success, so are recommendations.

David Robertson
Pharmacist, Alberta

Most of my patients are women going through menopause and difficult times in their lives. This program helped me understand how the entire endocrine system is involved in the process of menopause, and not just the ovaries. I am able to explain the patient's symptoms better and prescribe more efficiently. The program enhanced my knowledge of hormone compounding and made me confident to prescribe compounded HRT.

Erica Alex
Physician, British Columbia

Thank you so much for the seminar, it was wonderful.  I've now taken 5 weekend-long hormone conferences since getting licensed to prescribe and this was the best one.  Very clinically relevant and integrative, I enjoyed working through the cases with the other practitioners and the pharmacists at my table. I look forward to doing more hormonal work with the new information.

Carrie Meszaros
Naturopathic Doctor, Ontario

After attending the seminar, I am better able to advise prescribers on routes of delivery, methods of testing and follow-up care. I am also better able to explain therapeutic options to patients, for both medical prescription products and supplements. It was also a good opportunity to network with local practitioners and to work together in groups, which was very nice!
