The role of compounding in closing therapeutic gaps (Parts 1 and 2)

The role of compounding in closing therapeutic gaps (Parts 1 and 2)

Thursday 5th of September 2013
C9, 6 hours

Organised by the FIP Community Pharmacy Section, the FIP Hospital Pharmacy Section (TBC), the FIP Laboratories and Medicines Control Services (TBC) and the FIP Special Interest Groups on Formulation Design and Pharmaceutical Technology, and on Translational Research


Compounding is a service that has again been increasingly adopted by pharmacists over the last three decades. Researchers at the University of Sydney have identified some of the motives of these pharmacists as: a strategy for reprofessionalisation; professional satisfaction; demand by patients and doctors for customised medications; and financial returns that are in line with a professional service. Compounding today is not the same as 50 years ago. Pharmacists now have access to a huge range of ingredients, compounding equipment and dosage forms, and are able to help patients and doctors solve medication problems that many have given up trying to fix. The emphasis on solving medication problems has moved compounding from a product focused activity to one in which the compounding pharmacist is a hugely valuable member of the patient’s healthcare team.
