The impressive surge of CSTD adoptions in the pharmacy this year was driven by the new focus on safety in HD compounding. Given the direction from USP <800> on the use of CSTDs, perhaps it should come as no surprise that a majority of health systems are now using CSTDs for drug preparation. Nonetheless, the speed at which facilities are implementing these closed systems is remarkable.
As we do every year, we invite you to take advantage of our Compounding Slide Kit. Pharmacy Purchasing & Products is happy to provide much of the data you find on the following pages as PowerPoint slides. You are welcome to use this data in your own presentations; we hope it serves as a valuable support as you make the case for additional investments at your facility. And you are certainly welcome to incorporate the data into presentations you may make externally to educate your colleagues on compounding opportunities they may be considering. Simply access the slides on our website (www.pppmag.com/slides).
