Abstract:  Pediatric healthcare, to include compounded medications, is achallenge for healthcare providers. Although current studies have provided important new informationabout drug safety and effectiveness for children, carrying outstudies in children is difficult. Age-appropriate equipment and medical techniques, along with specialists who are sensitive to a child’s concerns, are a must. Therefore, experts must build a foundationand resources that are needed to conduct studies involving pediatric patients. Compounding pharmacists welcome reliable data from which to use when compounding medications for such an elite group of patients.
