This succinct, easy-to-use, current, and very functional handbook goes through the steps of receiving the prescription, preparing it, and completing the compound.

The book provides a source for contemporary practice previously found spread out over journal articles, legal documents, standards of practice, specialty books, and textbooks.

Highlights of this edition include a more comprehensive section on sterile dosage forms and their preparation; expanded discussion of medication errors; processing tools for improving compounded preparations and reducing errors; a new chapter on systems of measurement and basic pharmaceutical calculations; and a new section on veterinary pharmacy practice.

Patient cases with the sample compounded prescription orders and parenteral preparation medication orders show typical situations and problem-solving to meet special therapy and patient needs.
