A combination of prescription processing, compounding, and calculations, this reference helps students see how to apply basic science concepts to practice. Modern techniques and materials for compounding include sample formulations. Sections on calculations show several different methods for solving a given problem.
This book provides a source for contemporary practice previously found spread out over journal articles, legal documents, standards of practice, specialty books and textbooks. It goes through the steps of receiving the prescription, preparing it and completing the compound. Includes a back-of-the-book CD-ROM that complements the text with study guides, interactive self-assessment and multimedia demonstrations of compounding procedures for key chapters.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0781783968, Paperback)

Now in its Third Edition, this succinct, easy-to-use, current, and very functional handbook goes through the steps of receiving the prescription, preparing it, and completing the compound. The book provides a source for contemporary practice previously found spread out over journal articles, legal documents, standards of practice, specialty books, and textbooks.

Highlights of this edition include a more comprehensive section on sterile dosage forms and their preparation; expanded discussion of medication errors; processing tools for improving compounded preparations and reducing errors; a new chapter on systems of measurement and basic pharmaceutical calculations; and a new section on veterinary pharmacy practice. Patient cases with the sample compounded prescription orders and parenteral preparation medication orders show typical situations and problem-solving to meet special therapy and patient needs.

A back-of-book CD-ROM includes study guides, interactive self-assessment, and multimedia demonstrations of compounding procedures for key chapters. A companion website offers the CD content as well as full text online and an image bank.
