The 2012 USP Compliance Study was completed in June 2012 and the results have just been published. Originally performed in 2011, the study was the largest and most comprehensive investigation of compliance ever undertaken. The ongoing USP Compliance Study is led by sterile compounding experts Eric Kastango, RPh, MBA, FASHP, and Kate Douglass, MS, RN, APN,C, CRNI. We believe that the information gathered and the insights gained from the data will be valuable to the industry, will inform compounding decision-making and will facilitate ongoing improvements to patient safety.

The 2012 USP Compliance Study used a sophisticated web-based Gap Analysis Tool which Eric and Kate developed and have been using in their assessments of sterile compounding practice at industry locations for several years. This tool was made available at no charge to all study participants. It should also be noted that ALL INDIVIDUAL FACILITY RESULTS ARE CONFIDENITAL - ONLY AGGREGATE DATA WAS USED IN THE STUDY REPORT.

In return for their participation, each participant received a highly-detailed Action Plan for Compliance with the Chapter that was automatically generated based on their answers to the survey items. The Action Plan provided can be used to begin or continue sterile compounding practice improvements at participants’ locations.
