Compounded medications provide a unique role in improving therapeutic outcomes. When compounding is done right, it is safe and effective.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 24, 2014

President and CEO of Leiter’s Compounding, Charles Leiter, is set to present on Compounding Quality Assurance at the annual ASCRS Symposium and Congress in Boston on April 25, 2014. The conference is an annual convention for top Cataract and Refractive surgeons from across the country.

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.”
