Analgesic Compounding - Laboratory Training

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION

As it stands today, first-line treatments for pain management are often associated with adverse systemic effects, including gastrointestinal erosions, constipation, central nervous system depression, addiction, and tolerance. Moreover, many currently available commercial analgesics are limited in therapeutic efficacy, rendering many pain symptoms left untreated or inadequately managed. With compounded topical creams and gels, patients are better able to target the site of action through local application to affected regions, limiting systemic reactions and in many cases, improving therapeutic outcome. In addition, compounders can develop low-dose multi-drug formulations that reach multiple nociceptive pathways, further optimizing targeted effect and ultimately therapeutic payoff.

The objective of this laboratory training is to expose pharmacists and technicians to the hands-on experience of compounding dosage forms common to the niche market of analgesic therapy, notably creams, gels, and pastes. Participants will learn how to optimize the efficiency and quality of their compounding process by practicing novel compounding techniques and implementing innovative technologies and equipment.
