Level of Program:

Making drugs is risky business, even when it’s done in hospital pharmacies. From the person carrying the chemicals from the loading bay to the person doing the actual mixing, improper exposure to hazardous medication compounding substances can have lasting and devastating health effects.

On December 1, 2019, the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention’s (USP) Chapter <800> will become fully enforceable by regulators. This chapter addresses the physical environment and equipment needed to maintain sterility and protect the 8 million healthcare workers potentially exposed to hazardous vapors and particles each year. USP <800> is expected to be adopted by many regulators and accreditors, such as state pharmacy boards and The Joint Commission.

Join expert speaker Patricia C. Kienle, RPh, MPA, FASHP, for this 90-minute webinar, as she dives into the different types of hazardous drugs and the requirements for compliance. Kienle will also teach participants how to perform an Assessment of Risk and how to stay safe when handling hazardous drugs.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • State the types of hazardous drugs
  • Identify the document that must be used to create an organization’s hazardous drug list
