ACHIEVING BEST PRACTICES:
The Practice-based Activity will provide the pharmacist and technician with current theoretical knowledge, practical skill and measurable competencies necessary to meet the high standard of practice required for a sterile compounding practice and the autonomy to make informed decisions as they relate to a broad range of performance measures. The activity is comprised of an interactive self-study workbook and a highly dynamic live event staged in a sterile compounding facility. Pharmacists and technicians will be afforded the opportunity to prepare compounded sterile preparations in an ISO class 5 environment. Further, pharmacists and technicians will learn how to conduct all necessary maintenance, control, monitoring and testing procedures to sustain a sterile compounding facility and prepare compounded sterile preparations as they ensure high quality, assess elements of risk and learn how to validate all aspects of sterile compounding practice.
The Practice-based Activity features a series of 16 workstations, each one-hour in duration, and includes four (4) compounded sterile preparations, four (4) simulated sterile preparations, a robust Media-Fill Challenge test, Master Formulation Record design, facility workflow design, risk management assessment development, validation protocol development, observational auditing, automated compounding device training, and a hands-on session related to a series of technologies used in environmental monitoring, measuring, preparation testing, sterilization, sanitization, incubation and validation.
Pharmacists and Technicians new to sterile compounding or with an existing compounding practice.
A two part activity; self-study with learning assessment and live event with competency assessment.
