Rockville, Md., July 5, 2005--The U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) released today the USP Pharmacists' Pharmacopeia for practicing pharmacists.

  • Official monographs from USP 28NF 23, abridged for pharmacy practitioners;
  • Comprehensive information on compounding from pharmacy experts;
  • Information and resources to help reduce medication errors and enhance patient safety,
  • Legal statutes and regulatory information; and,
