Abstract: This article begins with a scenario suggested by the author: if a physician consults a pharmacist to provide a beyond-use date for an extemporaneously compounded medication, what should he or she do? She then discusses the search for a beyond-use date, quality measures (accuracy, precision, sensitivity and specificity, study-drug sample-solution analyses and internal standard) and using the worksheets. The worksheets alluded to are also provided (a High-Performance Liquid Chromatography Methodology Worksheet, Methodology Worksheet Results Worksheet and Formulation Batch Sheet). A glossary of terms accompanies the article.
