Compounding Event (CE)

Compounding has long been a foundational part of the pharmacy profession. Pharmacists were specialized in the art and practice of compounding and had a strong role in their communities. Being able to compound is one of the skills that allows us to help our patients obtain the best treatment possible. This Compounding Event has been developed in order to provide our members with the opportunity to strengthen their knowledge in pharmaceutical formulations and the art of compounding as well as practice preparing formulations of varying difficulties.
