Alberta Health Services (AHS) Pharmacy Services is making the compendium of non-sterile compounding formulations available to community pharmacies in Alberta without a subscription. This was previously available through a fee-based subscription or by contacting the Poison & Drug Information Service (PADIS).
External pharmacies can now access formulations required for continuity of care for patients who have been in AHS facilities via inphonet.albertahealthservices.ca/pharmacy instead of by contacting PADIS.
This compendium includes formulations for non-sterile preparations. These are to be used as a reference and are not intended to be master formulation records. Prior to using a formulation from the data base, regulated members should ensure the formulation meets ACP’s Standards for Pharmacy Compounding of Non-sterile Preparations.
To access this online resource, go to inphonet.albertahealthservices.ca/pharmacy and click on AHS Recipe (Compounding) Database.
