Aventura, FL – March 6-8, 2020

Aventura, FL US
March 6, 2020 to March 8, 2020

This live event activity transforms theory into practice bringing standards of practice to life. Setting the stage, an opening presentation brings to the forefront key elements of qualification, quality assurance and quality control. Thereafter, participants will rotate through a series of sixteen 1-hour workstations as they rehearse the role of compounder, designated person, inspector, and cleanroom designer. Participants will hone their aseptic techniques for non-hazardous and hazardous drug handling and compounding as they prepare sterile medications in a state-of-the-art ISO certified three-room cleanroom suite.

Participants will undergo a competency assessment for most of the sixteen workstations; otherwise, a group assessment will be conducted.



Testimonials:


 

I always find that the lab component of a class is important and with this course, we realized just how important the hands-on lab skills are. The fact that the practical component is the majority of the course makes it more special and complete. During the course, we had the opportunity to manipulate all equipment with supervision and guidance, giving us more confidence when we use these techniques and equipment in our day-to-day practice. Adequate training clarifies any doubts we may already have, and anything that comes up during the training can be addressed as well. All the teachers are very attentive and everything was perfect!

I have previously completed a non-sterile compounding course given by LP3 Network and had a positive outcome, utilizing much of what I learned in the course in my practice as an outpatient pharmacist. Having recently taken a position in a hospital setting, I decided to build on my basic knowledge of sterile compounding. I chose LP3 Network again because, in my opinion, they are recognized as experts in this facet of pharmacy, and justifiably so.  I highly recommend this program to any person who has the desire to excel in their compounding skills, because you can only be one of the best, if you learn from the best.

The course provided me with valuable, relevant and applicable information on sterile compounding in the comfort of a beautiful practice site. The combination of expert, highly knowledgeable instructors, the didactic written materials, the hands-on-practical experience in a state-of–the-art lab that reflects a matrix of sterility with sparkling glass and mirrors throughout, provided me with one of the finest programs in my 30+ year career and I came away with having a proactive, rather than reactive approach to the preparation of compounded medications. My confidence has been 'compounded', no pun intended!

What a wonderful program! I had the opportunity to take the non-sterile compounding course with Ken Speidel, Ken Latta and Mark Filosi two years prior and was shocked that they remembered me. This truly shows that when you take a course through LP3 Network, the instructors take the time to get to know the individuals they are teaching.

They use different types of learning throughout the entire program to grab the attention of every type of learner, through lecture, hands-on, and peer education. Without this program I believe that there would be some major gaps in our own instruction and performance in the lab, i.e., checking and rechecking equipment, sterility testing and validating and so on.

This program would not be complete without the practical component because it puts all the literature into perspective and the instructors teaching this course are absolutely A1! After taking the Sterile program, I honestly believe that no sterile lab should be compliant without an individual on staff having this training to make sure they fully understand the application of the theoretical knowledge. I can truly say leaving here today I am prepared to practice and teach in a sterile field.

Stephanie Armstrong
Pharmacy Assistant, Ontario

I was truly amazed by the amount of time dedicated to hands-on, practical skills during the Sterile compounding course. As a device specialist, I really appreciated the attention given to the proper use of lab equipment and devices, including laminar flow hoods, air-samplers, testing technologies for viable surface sampling, closed system transfer devices, and automated volumetric pumps. The fact that LP3 Network’s state-of-the-art facility is stocked with the latest compounding technologies was a huge bonus – especially for someone in my field! Not only did the instructors demonstrate the appropriate techniques for handling equipment and compounded preparations, but also discussed how these techniques were relevant to personnel safety and best practices, in order to prepare safe and effective compounded medications for a diverse patient population.
