Course Description

The seminar, which covers non-hazardous and hazardous drug compounding, is divided into four subsections:

  • Business Basics highlights the importance for a compounding practice to build a unique identity and deliver consistent marketing messages. Participants will construct, assess, rehearse, and deliver marketing messages through written and verbal communication. Business Basics also explores financial management as the participant reviews start-up costs, acquisition costs and expenditures, selling prices, forecasted growth and expectations, and revenue stream generators. A two-year financial plan spreadsheet identifies cornerstones and milestones for the new and expanding compounding practice.
  • Creating a Culture of Quality features implementation methods for regulatory guidelines, standards of practice, and standard operating procedures. Participants will learn how to establish a comprehensive action plan and documentation practices related to all aspects of a compounding practice.
  • Compounding Calculations provides the participant the opportunity to learn and practice common pharmacy calculations, including, interpreting drug monographs, drug conversions, drug strength adjustments applying the certificate of analysis, capsule calculations, displacement calculations, stock concentrates and aliquots for powder blends and powder-in-liquid mixtures, among more.
  • Scientific Principles teaches the participant how to ensure dosage form stability and suitability for the patient. The participant will learn to compound a medication by modifying its route of delivery and/or delivery system while optimizing drug bioavailability, patient safety and positive therapeutic outcomes. Scientific Principles also provides the participant the opportunity to apply a number of core concepts by assessing a series of clinical cases. It concludes with a comprehensive method for prescription assessment and clinical decision-making, both critical to a successful compounding practice.

Testimonials

"The greatest aspect of the training that LP3 Network offers is the instructors that teach these courses. At my Non-sterile training, I was excited to have Mark Filosi as the main instructor. Mark is a self-made, well-established compounder that has the experience and skills needed to run his own compounding pharmacy, which he has been doing for years. Together, with the other facilitators, they make up a team that is at the forefront of compounding, teaching you how to compound beyond regulation standards.”

Kyle Dolan | Pharmacist, Missouri

 

“From my initial contact with the LP3 Network staff, to getting signed up, to the accommodations, to the actual quality of the course, everything was top notch. The information was presented in a non-biased way and there was a good balance of lecture and hands-on lab work when paired with the lab training. The training supports development as a compounder, giving you not only the information you need to compound, but the standard you should strive to uphold. One of the best aspects of the course was how supportive the instructors were. The lecturers make the course fun, interesting and do a great job making difficult topics enjoyable. The material is presented in such a way as to make the theoretical information usable in everyday practice. I feel compounding is the future of pharmacy and this course does a wonderful job at introducing the topic. It is also a great place to network and meet people from all over with different background. I will definitely take more courses in the future with LP3 Network.” 

Cathleen Gerhardt | Pharmacist

 

“This program was very straight to the point. I feel that it gave me the confidence and knowledge necessary to start marketing my compounding business. Everyone involved in the course was very patient and friendly. No matter how good you are, the instructors can still add to what you already know. I strongly recommend it.”

Kyro Nagib | Pharmacist, South Carolina
