Since the highly-anticipated release of USP <800> there has been much discussion among healthcare pharmacies about the interpretation of these new guidelines---and what that will mean for their operations once implementation takes full effect later this year. During this workshop participants will examine the new standards and discover practical applications.

This workshop will offer CEs.

  • Primary Engineering Controls (PECs)

In addition, USP <797> has issued a revised draft.

  • Changes to how BUDs (Beyond-Use Dates) may be assigned
  • Testing requirements
  • Revised facility requirements
  • Gowning and garbing requirements


Learning Objectives:

  • Define what is considered a hazardous drug
  • Provide strategies to achieve USP <800> compliance
