This blended course is made up of 8 engaging lectures complete with many images and video taken in real practice settings. The stage is set by Patti Kienle as she defines hazardous drugs (HDs) and the danger they represent to us as well as an overview of USP 800. The remainder of the course covers the requirements of USP 800 but also includes CriticalPoint best practice recommendations. Also covered is the most difficult aspect, which is the integration of USP 797 requirements to minimize microbial contamination while simultaneously implementing USP 800 requirements to ensure containment of HD residues and protection of workers. These lectures provide highly detailed recommendations for implementing effective work practices and containment strategies that have been used in real-life practices.
This course includes 8.5 hours of home study Continuing Education.
After taking the On-Demand activities, there is a prescheduled 45-minute question-and-answer period where students can ask questions related to the course content.
