MEDISCA Australia | Achieving Best Practices: Sterile Compounding 4-6 Feb 2022

Mascot, NSW AU
February 4, 2022 to February 6, 2022

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION

The Practice-based Activity will provide the pharmacist and technician with current theoretical knowledge, practical skill and measurable competencies necessary to meet the high standard of practice required for a sterile compounding practice and the autonomy to make informed decisions as they relate to a broad range of performance measures. The activity is comprised of an interactive self-study workbook and a highly dynamic live event staged in a sterile compounding facility. Pharmacists and technicians will be afforded the opportunity to prepare compounded sterile preparations in an ISO class 5 environment. Further, pharmacists and technicians will learn how to conduct all necessary maintenance, control, monitoring and testing procedures to sustain a sterile compounding facility and prepare compounded sterile preparations as they ensure high quality, assess elements of risk and learn how to validate all aspects of sterile compounding practice.

The Practice-based Activity features a series of 16 workstations, each one-hour in duration, and includes four (4) compounded sterile preparations, four (4) simulated sterile preparations, a robust Media-Fill Challenge test, Master Formulation Record design, facility workflow design, risk management assessment development, validation protocol development, observational auditing, automated compounding device training, and a hands-on session related to a series of technologies used in environmental monitoring, measuring, preparation testing, sterilization, sanitization, incubation and validation.


Intended audience

Pharmacists and Technicians new to sterile compounding or with an existing compounding practice.


ACTIVITY DESIGN

A two part activity; self-study with learning assessment and live event with competency assessment.
