Palliative Care

The goal of Palliative Care is to relieve suffering and provide the best possible quality of life for patients and families.  Doctors, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, chaplains, massage therapists and nutritionist are often part of the team of experts that provide palliative care.

Palliative Care is not a one-size-fits-all approach and recognizes that patients have a range of diseases that respond differently to treatment options.  A key benefit is that it customizes treatment to meet the individual needs of each patient; aiming to relieve symptoms such as pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite and difficulty sleeping.  It helps patients gain the strength to carry on with daily life and improves their ability to tolerate medical treatments.

Pharmacy compounding has the ability to meet the unique needs of these patients by providing personalized medication formulations to relieve and manage symptoms.  By working closely with a compounding pharmacist, a physician can prescribe a regimen of care tailored to the patient’s individual needs.

Compound Care Pharmacy has routinely customized formulations for:
Patients suffering from acute and chronic pain using unique drug combinations in order to achieve a synergistic effect and help keep administration to a minimum.
Patients requiring an alternate dosage form, such a customizing a transdermal gel for patients unable to take oral medication or adding/eliminating flavors.  Medications can also be prepared as oral suspensions, suppositories and lozenges.
Patients experiencing unwanted side effects such drowsiness, GI upset, and constipation by preparing medications that avoid first-pass effect.
Patients requiring a different strength of their medication.
Patients that need to take multiple doses and/or medications throughout the day.  We can combine their medications to reduce the frequency.
