Despite the attention brought to the safety of sterile compounded products by incidents
such as the New England Compounding Center tragedy in 2012, there continues to be
a disconnect between pharmacy practices and the potential for errors. The Institute
for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) has identified lack of standardization and variability
in practice as two of the root causes of risk in compounding sterile preparations.
Additionally, recent guidelines highlight the role that pharmacy leadership can take
in ensuring medication safety in the health-system setting.
This activity will provide pharmacists with an understanding of parameters to consider with IV compounding and their role in IV medication safety. Attendees will understand the impact of medication errors from the perspective of a healthcare provider. A discussion on options between internal compounding or outsourced compounded sterile products will provide clarification on the decision-making process. Pharmacists will be able to compare 503A with 503B facility requirements with a focus on regulatory changes affecting the facility types. Additional measures regarding USP <797> and USP <800> compliance will be discussed.
The target audience for this activity includes health‐system pharmacists, including chief pharmacy officers and pharmacy directors. At the completion of this symposium, the participant will be better able to:
