More About This Textbook


A comprehensive and easy-to-follow guide to good practice in extemporaneous compounding. It incorporates the key findings and outputs from the UK National Advisory Board study, including advice on purchasing unlicensed medicines. It will be adopted as the standard for extemporaneous dispensing for NHS patients. Although the standards set out in this book are primarily written for implementation in NHS hospitals, the principles should be equally applied across the profession internationally. Written in two parts, this book provides: standards for extemporaneous dispensing stability summaries for the 50 most commonly prepared extemporaneously prepared medicines in NHS hospitals. Compounding of pharmaceutical formulations remains a core skill of pharmacists and is taught at undergraduate level. Written by experts in the field with input from the UK NHS Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance Committee, this book will be an invaluable reference for any clinical or procurement pharmacist, pharmacy technician or student involved with extemporaneous preparation.
