This one-hour webinar is presented by two IACP Foundation academic research investigators to bring attendees education on the Foundation’s research initiatives to advance the practice of pharmacy compounding. In the first half of this webinar, participants will learn about the Institutional Review Board (IRB) submission process, identify common barriers and pitfalls that can occur, and examine methods for overcoming these barriers using case vignettes. In the second half, attendees will analyze a case study with extemporaneously compounded levothyroxine capsules and aliquots and learn how the findings can improve current practices in a compounding pharmacy.
At the conclusion of this program, the pharmacist and technician attendee will be able to:
- Describe common barriers encountered when developing an Institutional Review Board (IRB) submission.
- Identify appropriate methods for developing an IRB submission that will minimize the common pitfalls.
- Apply the concepts and methods of overcoming these barriers to case vignettes.
- Identify case study design methodology and scientific findings for extemporaneously compounded levothyroxine capsules and aliquots.
- Apply the scientific data obtained from the case study to improve current practices in a compounding pharmacy.
This program is made possible through an unrestricted educational grant-in-aid from the IACP Foundation.
