Activity Description

For busy managers, compounders, and technicians this is the third in our series of examinations of “Gray Areas” of Pharmacy practice – areas of daily concern or some confusion as to the lines between State regulations, Federal Guidance, and what is in-line with what is considered best practices in compounding activities.

From time to time, it’s important to reevaluate the daily practices that many have become rote to you. Are you really using your time to your best advantage? Are you really employing the best techniques in your daily practice? How can I be sure I am in-line with the most modern or most effective practices in my compounding activities? These professional exchanges have always been challenging to manage in our busy practices, but no more difficult than in these unprecedented pandemic times, where physical distance and the usual professional interactions have become less routine.

ProCE™ and LDT have been listening, and have reached out to pharmacists, technicians, and other compounders to see where they feel confusion exists and what they think are small areas that cause them big stress. The presentation of this third installment in our continuing series will help you round out your over-all compounding skill set. We hope you find them not only interesting, but and above all useful!

Learning Objectives

The target audience for this activity includes pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. At the completion of this activity, pharmacists will be able to:

  • Contrast the difference between a regulatory requirement and a “demonstrated best practice,” and how they effect daily practice.
  • Discuss the appropriate use of foil overseals when compounding Compounded Sterile Preparations (CSPs) that could impact the integrity of the compounding sterile medication.
  • Compare & Contrast the differences between wall materials / finishes used in the construction of cleanrooms or segregated compounding areas (SCAs).

At the completion of this activity, pharmacy technicians will be able to:

  • Discuss the overlapping regulations that impact the compounding of sterile medications.
  • Outline potential compliance strategies for the proper selection and use of cleaners, disinfectants, and sporicidals used in ISO Classed areas & SCAs.
  • Discuss the factors effecting CSPs during their packaging and transport.
