Essential Elements of Hazardous Drug Compounding | On-demand version

Course Format

1.5-day live virtual seminar (12 hours) that allows you to connect and interact with peers and the facilitator online, in real time, through open mic Q&A sessions, group discussions, polls, and online chats.

Course Description

Are you currently compounding with cyclosporine, estradiol, fluorouracil, phenytoin, progesterone, spironolactone, tacrolimus, testosterone, or any other drug found on the NIOSH List of Antineoplastic and Other Hazardous Drugs? If yes, then you want to comply with USP General Chapter <800> Hazardous Drugs – Handling in Healthcare Settings.

This application-based program is designed to take factual information presented in published USP, OSHA, NIOSH, and other healthcare guidelines and provide practical and applicable solutions to achieving compliance and safety within your practice. This program takes abstract concepts and makes them tangible and sensible. Participants will not just learn about the theory of facility requirements, they will develop their own facility blueprints and discuss and optimize them as a group. Participants will learn how to assess risk from personnel training & competency, to personal protective equipment (PPE), to drug handling, compounding processes, cleaning & deactivation, use of closed-system transfer devices, engineering controls, storage, and more. Participants will go through applicable scenarios and real-life situations that will shed light on exposure risk and how to correct it. The practical application and implementation of the requirements outlined in USP <800> can be challenging. This training provides you with the resources and insight for transitioning into compliance or maintaining compliance with USP <800>.
