Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As the role of pharmacists has changed from product-orientated to person-orientated, the place of compounding within pharmacy practice has diminished. There are some that say that compounding no longer has a place in pharmacy practice and others that compounding is an integral part of a pharmacist’s knowledge. This issue will explore the role of compounding in modern pharmacy practice and ways that pharmacists can ensure the quality of the products that they make and have confidence that the product they made was the product they intended to make. You and your colleagues are invited to submit articles about any aspect of compounding with in contemporary pharmacy practice or pharmacy education.
