Virtual Seminar – October 24-25, 2020

October 24, 2020 to October 25, 2020

Are you currently compounding with any of these active pharmaceutical ingredients: apomorphone, azathioprin, cyclophosphamide, cyclosporine, diethylstilbestrol, estradiol, fluorouracil, medroxyprogesterone, phenytoin, progesterone, spironolactone, or tacrolimus? To view the NIOSH List of Antineoplastic and Other Hazardous Drugs in Healthcare Settings (2016), please click here.

If so, you should be compliant with USP General Chapter <800> Hazardous Drugs – Handling in Healthcare Settings, which was formally published February 1, 2016 in the First Supplement to USP 39-NF 34. USP <800> became official on December 1, 2019, although it is currently informational only and not compendially applicable (for the latest from USP, please click here). While USP <800> may not be compendially applicable, it is important to check with your State Board of Pharmacy for current regulations with respect to Hazardous Drug (HD) handling, as they may already have, or are in the process of adopting USP <800>, either in part or in whole. In light of this, waiting too long to begin the implementation process and ensuring HD compliance could negatively impact your practice. It is critical that pharmacies that compound HDs prepare their equipment, processes, and staff for the requirements of USP <800>. During this training activity, you will learn about personal protective equipment, engineering controls, closed system transfer devices, facility design, workflow considerations, and safe handling practices. Moreover, you will learn how to minimize and prevent hazardous drug contamination and exposure through: powder containment techniques, waste disposal, staff training, and the handling of emergency situations such as chemical spills.

Although the negative health risks associated with occupational exposure are well-defined, the practical application and implementation of the requirements outlined in USP <800> can be challenging. This training activity will provide you with the resources needed for either an easy transition to becoming compliant or maintaining compliance with USP <800>.
