University Expert Title in the Formulation of Individualized Drugs in Special Patients: Pediatrics, Palliative Care and Geriatrics

The main objective is to specialize the pharmacist and provide him with tools that enable him to respond to real clinical situations in pediatrics, geriatrics and rare diseases, where the commercialized treatments are not adapted to the special characteristics of these patients:

  • Facilitate the administration of medications and thus improve adherence to therapy and adherence to pharmacotherapy: adaptation of the dosage form.
  • To propose solutions in the face of therapeutic gaps, shortages or withdrawal of industrially manufactured medicines.
  • Adapt and optimize the quantities of medicine to the pathology, posology and therapeutic target.
  • Know the techniques of association of different active principles.
  • Detect clinical situations that can be solved through the formulation of an individualized medication.

This Expert Title has a strong online component, but focused in a very interactive way, seeking the constant involvement of the students and avoiding classic online training with static and little participatory methodologies. In addition, it consists of a face-to-face part as the culmination of the learning process.

In addition, it has been designed thinking about recent graduates who wish to train specifically to practice in this area, since in the 5th year of the degree in Pharmacy the optional subject of Formulation of Individualized Drugs is taught, and there are students with great interest in continuing their specialization in this direction.
