Aventura, FL – October 22, 2018
Both pediatric and geriatric patients present with similar concerns regarding medication intake, most notably, difficulty in swallowing a tablet or capsule, or the requirement for a lower dosage strength than is commercially available. Such a challenge places compounding in high demand as a means to achieve alternate dosage strengths and dosage forms in order to meet the unique needs of these patient populations. The most common dosage form prescribed to pediatric and geriatric patients are oral liquids because they circumvent the challenges of swallowing a tablet or capsule and allow for flexible dosing. Alternatively, child-friendly dosage forms, such as gummies, offers a unique avenue that the compounding pharmacist can take.
In this laboratory training, participants will be exposed to detailed procedures required to uphold exceptional compounding quality in the niche area of pediatric and geriatric therapy. With the implementation of innovative technologies and techniques, compounders will leave this course with the tools and knowledge needed to further their compounding practice.
