Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"This is an excellent book on the stability of parenteral drugs for pharmacists, especially those working in settings that require longer expiration dates for the products that they prepare and dispense."

-- Lawrence Carey, BS, PharmD (Temple University School of Pharmacy) Doody's Review - previous edition



This title is targeted at pharmacists working in home infusion and other alternate care pharmacy practices. Pharmacists in these practice settings consistently need to review information for acceptable concentrations and compatible diluents after further dilution as well as for stability data greater than 24 hours. Both authors are credible authorities with a wealth of experience related to working in alternate care pharmacy settings.
