PP&P Webinars Can Help You Prepare For December 1st!

April 2019 - Vol.16 No. 4 - Page #1

As we close in on the final 7 months before the December 1st, 2019 effectiveness date for USP General Chapter <800> Hazardous Drugs – Handling in Healthcare Settings, and the revised General Chapter <797> Pharmaceutical Compounding – Sterile Preparations, it is the perfect time to formulate ideas for operational implementations. It is one thing to read and digest the content of these vital documents, but applying them in the real world sometimes takes teaching and ingenuity. And because no two hospital pharmacies operate the same, care must be taken in applying these texts to your specific practices. Reviewing the work of others who have taken steps in this direction can help you glean what steps you need to take to affect positive change toward regulatory compliance.

In our ongoing series of webinars focusing on crucial areas of hospital pharmacy
practice, we are excited to present the next installment: USP Compliant PEC Cleaning and Decontamination. This webinar, sponsored by NuAire and presented by Fred Massoomi, PharmD, FASHP, an expert in the tenets of hazardous drug safe handling, will take place May 17th and will delve into several key components of this important set of tasks. The webinar will explore:

  • Establishing cleaning and decontamination SOPs for primary engineering controls (PECs)
  • Equipment and product options for safe and compliant cleaning
  • Staff training
  • Proper documentation
  • And more!

In addition to this upcoming presentation, all registered members at pppmag.com can access our back catalog of valuable webinars, along with the entire digital archive of Pharmacy Purchasing & Products.

On a final note, we very much look forward to seeing you in Boston this June for the ASHP Summer Meetings & Exhibition. We always enjoy meeting with hospital pharmacy leaders and exchanging new and exciting ideas. We hope you will drop by booth 400 and say hello.

All the best,

R. Mitchell Halvorsen
