Non-Sterile Compounding 2018 Update - Part 1: Overview

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This activity has been updated and renewed with a new ACPE number for participants to complete beginning July 2, 2018.
Compounding is an integral part of pharmacy practice and is essential to the provision of healthcare. In response to numerous tragic patient outcomes, a result of the lack of attention to the main principles of USP 795, the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Pharmacy has implemented new credit requirements for those pharmacists engaging in or overseeing complex non-sterile compounding. Both experienced and new pharmacists working in this area need to have a comprehensive understanding of the established guidelines and procedures for proper and safe compounding. Part 1 of this course will provide an overview of the standard principals of non-sterile compounding to ensure the preparation of quality non-sterile compounds.

Learning Objectives
-Upon completion of this activity, the participant should be able to:
-Distinguish non-sterile dosage forms and their associated BUDs
-Analyze the individual components needed for a master formulation record and compounding record
-Determine appropriate methods for hazardous drug handling, storage and preparation
