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 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.
