Q&A with Patricia C. Kienle, RPh, MPA, FASHP

Pharmacy Purchasing & Products: What was the motivation behind creating The Chapter <800> Answer Book?
Patricia C.

Therefore, pharmacists and health care facilities have had a significant number of questions since USP <800> was finalized and the enforcement date of July 1, 2018 was established. After receiving a significant number of queries about how to implement the chapter, ASHP decided to compile a book of USP <800> questions and answers to guide compliance efforts.
