Pharmaceutical compounding is the practice of transforming an active ingredient into a ready-to-use medication.

Pharmaceutical compounding is an activity linked to the origins of pharmacy itself, which has evolved had in hand with the profession and remains an exclusive preserve of the pharmacist.

It is a technical activity with a strong clinical component, which adds significant value to the work of the pharmacist in areas where individualization of drug therapy is required: pediatrics, geriatrics, ophthalmology, etc.

The pharmaceutical compounding workgroup seeks to harness the know-how and experience of hospital pharmacists dedicated to preparing extemporaneous formulations to address the issues confronting our profession today and the challenges it is likely to encounter in the future.
