Continuous Quality Improvement
At Women’s International Pharmacy, maintaining the quality of our preparations is of paramount importance. Therefore, a continuous quality improvement process is employed. Our entire staff takes an active role in our quality review and improvement process.
Women’s International Pharmacy is proud to report earning the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board’s (PCAB®) Seal of Accreditation for meeting and/or exceeding national quality standards. PCAB® Accreditation is an additional, voluntary step to ensure the compounding pharmacy profession’s most rigorous review and inspection measures are met. To earn the designation “PCAB® Accredited compounding pharmacy,” an extensive application was completed that was reviewed by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board. Compounding policies and procedures were then reviewed by professionals. Next, an extensive on-site inspection was conducted by compounding experts. Women’s International Pharmacy was awarded accreditation only after these stringent evaluations were completed and the pharmacy was deemed compliant with PCAB’s® quality and safety standards.
Women’s International Pharmacy staff members belong to several organizations involved with professional pharmacy compounding, including the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (IACP), American College of Apothecaries (ACA), the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA), and the American Pharmacist’s Association (APhA). On a local level, we maintain relationships with faculties and students at the University of Wisconsin School of Pharmacy, Midwestern University College of Pharmacy, and our state pharmacy associations, which give us valuable resources for compounding issues.
