Two new compounding templates online

August 7, 2012

Each time a pharmacist or a pharmacy technician compounds a drug or a blood product, he or she must ensure that the compounded product is prepared according to a written compounding formula and a written preparation process. [1]Whenever possible, they must use a compounding formula from a reputable source. If no formula is available, a pharmacist must use his or her pharmaceutical knowledge to create a formula and reduce it to writing.  

To help you reduce your master formula to writing, ACP has developed a compound formula template.
