This on-demand course is made up of 4 lectures that begin with setting the stage by defining a “state of control” and “microbial state of control.”
Sterile compounding primary and secondary engineering controls, contamination control, and other work practices combine to ensure facilities are able to achieve and maintain an environment that reduces the risk of microbial contamination to CSPs. The course defines the term contamination control, which works to reduce the amount of contamination introduced to the sterile compounding areas, and specific best practices in material handling and worker conduct.
The course also provides an explanation of USP 797 (2008 and 2019) requirements as well as CriticalPoint best practice recommendations related to material handling and cleaning and disinfection of both primary and secondary engineering controls used for nonhazardous sterile compounding. The course ends with a review of aseptic work practices, none of which are specifically required by USP 797. However, CriticalPoint considers these to be basic activities that every compounder must follow.
