COMPREHENSIVE STERILE COMPOUNDING is a 3-day, 20-hour practice-based course designed for pharmacists and technicians who are experienced in compounding. Completion of the Fundamental Compounding & Calculations Course is recommended, but not required. Physicians and other healthcare professionals are welcome to attend. Participants are instructed in the proper technique preparation, and quality control tests for sterile products, such as validation testing, membrane filtration, pyrogen tests, BET (bacterial endotoxin test), and others. Participants work in a simulated sterile environment in a 795 lab; on the final day, cleanroom exercises and a high-risk media fill will be conducted in a true 797 lab.
This course will include the USP guidelines, proper hand washing, and garbing. The curriculum, updated for 2016, will prepare attendees for anticipated changes to USP . Each attendee must pass an aseptic glove test and media fill to successfully complete the course.
The attendee must pass an aseptic glove test and a media fill to successfully complete the course.
An optional Sterile Compounding: USP Chapter Home Study is also available and provides an additional 20 CE hours of sterile compounding training for technicians and pharmacists.
The proposed revisions to USP Chapter represent a significant change in areas ranging from staff training and competencies, facility design, and the storage and use of compounded sterile preparations. Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians engaged in the compounding of sterile medications need to be aware of the potential impact of these changes. As a result of this webinar, participants should be able to evaluate their current practice and identify areas of modification for compliance.
