PHARMACEUTICAL FORMULATION C

PHA3PFC

2014

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Drugs are used in a wide range of dosage forms and pharmacists need to understand the design and rationale behind available dosage forms. It is assumed that students, from previous subjects, will be aware of two phase systems and simple pharmacokinetics. This subject extends to investigate solid dosage forms and more complex pharmacokinetic models. Pharmacists also need to be able to prepare extemporaneous products with confidence and professional pride. Extemporaneous dispensing continues to be an important skill required by many pharmacists. As mentioned in previous pharmaceutics subjects, the PSA Professional Practice Standard for compounding and competencies relating to compounding are the foundation of extemporaneous dispensing. This subject aims to assess your competency in extemporaneous dispensing and calculations.
