Pediatric health care: an introduction.

Author information

International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding, Edmond, Oklahoma 73034, USA.


Pediatric healthcare, to include compounded medications, is a challenge for healthcare providers. Although current studies have provided important new information about drug safety and effectiveness for children, carrying out studies in children is difficult. Age-appropriate equipment and medical techniques, along with specialists who are sensitive to a child's concerns, are a must. Therefore, experts must build a foundation and resources that are needed to conduct studies involving pediatric patients. Compounding pharmacists welcome reliable data from which to use when compounding medications for such an elite group of patients.
