An Information Resource to Trust

June 2019 - Vol. 16 No. 6 - Page #1

It is striking to consider the sheer number of information outlets in existence today, let alone refine those outlets to those that are professionally beneficial. There now are a wide variety of engagement platforms, from traditional methods such as print publications, networking events, and conferences, to a plethora of digital and social media options including podcasts, teleconferencing, and webinars.

Having such a wide variety to choose from is a “good problem,” and we encourage clinical pharmacy practitioners and leaders to always cast a wide net when it comes to information exchange. Thus, we are proud to offer a range of information engagement platforms ourselves. In addition to our print publications, our online pharmacy product and service directory —, and our vast digital issue archive, we continue to offer expert editorial via webinar.

In the next webinar, scheduled for June 21st from 1:00 – 1:30pm EST, expert Bryan Prince, MBA, will discuss and clarify the facilities requirements of USP General Chapter <795> Pharmaceutical Compounding – Nonsterile Preparations. This concise, 30-minute webinar will detail the timeline for <795> compliance, facility requirements, QA/QC processes, effective workflow layouts and PEC placement, and more. Combined with USP General Chapters’ <797> and <800>, comprehensive application of Chapter <795> is key to a well-run pharmacy.

Even if you prefer to have a hard copy book or magazine in hand, as many people do, we invite you to peruse our online and digital resources. Take a look at our past webinars and absorb the content at your convenience. Information is everywhere, and all too often its value is dubious, which is why our peer-to-peer content model remains effective. In the practice of clinical pharmacy, we hope you trust the experience and opinion of your peers as much as we do.

All the best,

R. Mitchell Halvorsen
