Compounding Training Programs

April 2015 : State of Pharmacy Compounding - Vol.12 No. 4 - Page #37

While intrinsic to an effective pharmacy compounding operation, training programs can be challenging to implement. Compounding volume is a strong determinant of program implementation. Among facilities producing 50 or more compounds per day, 85% are operating with a training program in place.
