Abstract:  Pharmacy compounding is re-emerging as a critical area of pharmacy practice. This re-emergence has generated considerable discussion among stakeholders of the pharmacy profession about how pharmacy compounding is best regulated to ensure the safety and efficacy of compounded preparations. In light of this discussion, the American College of Apothecaries conducted a survey in August 2006 that was sent to compounding pharmacists, the list of which was provided by the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding. The purpose of the survey was to (1) assess the safety and efficacy of compounded preparations as reported by compounding pharmacists, (2) describe the types of compounding and other professional services that are offered by these pharmacists, (3) describe selected business information for compounding pharmacies, and (4) monitor changes in the compounding pharmacy landscape since the 2005 National Survey of Compounding Pharmacists, the results of which were published in the November/December 2006
