Best Practices for Handling Hazardous Drugs teaches requirements of USP Chapter 800 as well as CriticalPoint Best Practices that are relevant to all aspects of handling hazardous drugs (HDs). Though it can be taken alone, CriticalPoint strongly recommends taking the “Best Practices of Nonhazardous Sterile-to-Sterile Compounding” before taking this class, which assumes mastery and understanding of USP 797 (2008 and 2019) as well as at least a basic understanding of CriticalPoint best garbing and cleaning practices.
Attending this class will help participants to develop and implement best work practices while they work to future-proof their facility for performing both nonsterile and sterile HD handling. Of particular note is the focus on the integration of USP 797 microbial-risk-reduction work practices with the additional requirements for containment of hazardous drugs. Participants must successfully complete selected eLessons prior to attending the live virtual training, which is presented in a fun and dynamic way by faculty with demonstrated expertise in handling hazardous drugs.
