NEW: Physician briefing papers from APC

Hard to believe, but there are still physicians out there who question the legitimacy of pharmacy compounding, so they’re reluctant to consider the compounded therapies you can provide their patients. That, or they press you to compound substances that are prohibited.

To help you educate prescribers, APC and the Pharmacy Compounding Foundation have developed two member-only briefing documents you can share with physicians and other prescribers. One is “The Truth About Pharmacy Compounding.” It explains the regulatory framework in which compounders operate and provides an overview of what can and cannot be compounded under federal law. The other is “Compounding Peptides: It’s Complicated.” It explains restrictions on peptide compounding as well as uncertainty surrounding the list of semaglutide on FDA’s Drug Shortage List.

The APC and PCF logos give credibility to the documents, and both are designed so you can add your pharmacy logo as well.

Download the new briefing papers here and share them with the physician offices you or your sales reps visit. (It’s an APC member-only tool, so you’ll need your login and password to access it.)
