0222_SCH_Sterile Compounding Best Practices_Live
Pharmacy personnel providing care to patients by preparing compounding sterile preparation medications are faced with updated USP 797 regulations related to compounding procedures and must be knowledgeable on how to implement the revised regulation requirements. This live training component transforms pharmacy theory into practice, bringing best practices to life with skill-based simulation and competency assessment through return demonstration. Setting the stage, an opening presentation brings to the forefront key elements of the reason for revising compounding standards, increased quality assurance and mechanisms for quality control detailed in current compounding regulations. Participants will rotate through a series of three practical labs to simulate the role of compounder and compounding trainer. Participants will engage in skill demonstration including gowning, donning sterile glove technique, aseptic techniques for non-hazardous drug compounding, and revised cleaning procedures all within their facility cleanroom to capture the specific operational components within their facility.
After attending this session, learners should be able to:
1. Examine the impact of compounding standards to patient risk.
2. Identify key aspects of the revisions to USP Chapter 797.
3. Demonstrate donning and doffing, hand hygiene, aseptic manipulations and sanitization techniques.
4. Explain how to perform the gloved fingertip and thumb sampling and a media-fill test.
5. Describe how to apply the revised USP 797 requirements to operational practices.
6. Integrate current USP 797 and SCH compounding policy revised requirements into personal pharmacy practice.
