Pharmaceutical Challenges in Sheltering
Recorded On: 06/16/2020
Medications, including compounds, are often necessary to treat our patients. But the cost of medications can add up quickly and the record keeping requirements can become challenging. This session will cover considerations when using compounded medications, including preparing them in-house. We will also discuss controlled substance record keeping for compounded and commercial products.
This session was recorded during the Spring Conference for Animal Welfare 2020 in partnership with the Association of Shelter Veterinarians.
This session is approved for:
• CAWA CEs
• Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) CEs toward ACO CE requirements per Ch. 829 of the Texas Health and Safety Code
