Course Format

2-day live practical lab (12 hours) where you will receive hands-on experience developing non-sterile compounding skills, and preparing eight (8) dosage forms. Each compounded dosage form concludes with a quantitative and qualitative assessment. Participants complete a self-directed learning assessment co-signed by the program facilitator.

Instructional Design

The Practical Lab is a hands-on application-based compounding skills development session followed by the preparation of eight (8) dosage forms each with a unique chemical composition, routes of delivery and delivery system. The eight prepared compounded medications undergo a qualitative and quantitative assessment. The Practical Lab program learning assessment consists of an assessment of learned preparatory techniques, which includes those highlighted during the skills development session complemented by scores allocated to the qualitative and quantitative assessment results.

Course Description

The practical lab features a series of fundamental skills followed by the preparation of eight dosage forms. This hands-on experience gives the participant the opportunity to learn and practice general compounding lab processes and procedures, compounding techniques, operating electromechanical equipment, managing a workstation, documenting standard operating procedure logs, all while operating within a compounding facility and preparing non-sterile compounded medications.

Additionally, elements of a unique process experienced in the Virtual Seminar can now be realized in this Practical Lab, which serves as the basis for the development, and subsequent preparation of any non-sterile dosage form containing any appropriate active pharmaceutical ingredient. The unique elements include:

  • Compounding by composition (i.e., powder blends, and powder-in-liquid mixtures in the form of solutions or dispersions)
  • Preparatory states-of-matter and final dosage form states-of-matter (i.e., solids, semisolids and liquids)
  • Routes of delivery and delivery systems
  • Sites of administration and target sites of action

Featured Activities:

  • Skills Development
    • Weighing powders
    • Measuring liquids
    • Geometric Addition
    • Clean transfers of semisolids 
    • Weight variance testing
  • Organoleptic assessments
  • Beyond-Use-Dating assignments

Featured Dosage Forms:

  • Cellulose-based hydro-alcoholic gel in an actuated dispenser
  • Oral suspension including pH step
  • Capsules using 100-count capsule machine
  • PEG-based troches including mold fill calculation
  • Rapid dissolve tablets including aliquot calculation
  • Suppositories including displacement factor calculations
  • Topical cream emulsion, using an electronic blade mixer, mill and planetary mixer (no blades)
  • Transdermal Pluronic Lecithin Organogel using syringe-to-syringe mixing technique

Intended audience

 

  • Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians, Pharmacy Managers, Designated persons in positions of responsibility, and Quality Assurance & Quality Control officers looking to advance their practical non-sterile compounding skills related to any professional setting.
  • Auditors / Inspectors looking to hone their assessment skills in concert with the standards described and detailed in this Activity.
