Abstract:  Quality management is one of the many aspects to compounding quality preparations. This article discusses standardized compounding within a pharmacy, which is an integral part of quality management. A pharmacy that has not established standardized compounding procedures, which are important to ensuring that all preparations are of high quality, has created an environment within which errors will occur. The same applies to a pharmacy that has established standardized compounding procedures but employs pharmacists who do not have a common understanding of the standard operating procedures within their pharmacy.
