Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Now in its Third Edition, 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.

A back-of-book CD-ROM includes study guides, interactive self-assessment, and multimedia demonstrations of compounding procedures for key chapters. A companion website offers the CD content as well as full text online and an image bank.
