DERMATOLOGICAL COMPOUNDING WITH PAIN MANAGEMENT is an accredited 15 hour (1.5 CEUs) practice-based course designed for pharmacists, technicians, marketers, and students who want to learn more about a growing segment for compounding. Physicians and other healthcare professionals are welcome to attend. This course is a combination of didactic lectures for content and laboratory activities to enhance an already established skill of compounding. Participants choosing this course should have a solid understanding of fundamental compounding techniques and calculations. Topics covered include: compounded topical pain treatments for both acute and chronic conditions, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, acne vulgaris, acne rosacea, cutaneous infections (impetigo, cellulitis, candidiasis, warts), hyper-pigmentation, scars, and stretch marks. Compounding with Hazardous Products will also be covered in relation to dermatological products which use hazardous components.
Our low instructor/participant ratio allows for individual attention and interaction. The program is structured to demonstrate skills that can be immediately implemented by participants. Learn about the ACA Compounding Training Instructors at acainfo.org/instructors.
