    • Overview

      Hormone replacement has been around for quite some time, however, the ability of the compounding pharmacy to provide these products to the patient that may provide better alternatives for some may be poorly understood or even disregarded by the practitioner, pharmacist, or patient. This activity will allow the audience to better understand the process of replacement hormone compounding as well as the application of compounded hormones in specific patient populations.
