Charles was asked to give his widely acclaimed presentation on “Quality Assurance programs in Compounding Pharmacies” and how Leiter’s exemplifies the gold standard in the industry. He will discuss Outsourcing Facilities and the Food and Drug Administration’s role in compounding.
Leiter said, “The number one rule for doctors when ordering a compounded medication is to verify that the pharmacy is PCAB accredited. If the compounding facility is registered as an Outsourcing Facility, it should be verified that the facility is operating at cGMP. Prescribing Physicians cannot continue to rely on the lowest cost provider in the industry.”
Leiter concluded, “Compounded medications provide a unique role in improving therapeutic outcomes. When compounding is done right, it is safe and effective.”
