Handbook of Extemporaneous Preparation
A Guide to Pharmaceutical Compounding

RRP: £48.00 You save £2.40 (5.0%)
Handbook of Extemporaneous Preparation is a comprehensive and easy-to-follow guide to good practice in extemporaneous compounding.

Written by experts in the field with input from the UK NHS Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance Committee, this book is an invaluable reference for any clinical or procurement pharmacist, pharmacy technician or student involved with extemporaneous preparation.

Written in two parts, this book provides:
  • standards for extemporaneous dispensing
  • stability summaries for the 50 most commonly prepared extemporaneously prepared medicines in NHS hospitals.

It also includes sections relating to clinical risk assessment and advice for procuring "Specials" from manufacturers.

It incorporates the key findings and outputs from the UK National Advisory Board study, including advice on purchasing unlicensed medicines. Although the standards set out in this book are primarily written for implementation in NHS hospitals, the principles should be equally applied across the profession internationally.
