Just as it is clear that patient safety cannot be guaranteed through the actions of a single department, the commitment to providing patients with safe compounded medications must be undertaken facility-wide. As such, it is good to see that most pharmacies are coordinating their efforts with organizational leadership to ensure this endeavor receives the appropriate resources. However, pharmacy collaboration with other departments, such as nursing, infection control, and risk management, could benefit from additional expansion.
As we do every year, we invite you to take advantage of our Compounding Slide Kit. Pharmacy Purchasing & Products is happy to provide much of the data you find on the following pages as PowerPoint slides. You are welcome to use this data in your own presentations; we hope it serves as a valuable support as you make the case for additional investments at your facility. And you are certainly welcome to incorporate the data into presentations you may make externally to educate your colleagues on compounding opportunities they may be considering. Simply access the slides on our website (www.pppmag.com/slides).
