View Presentations on Environmental Monitoring and USP 797

Since USP Chapter <797> was published two years ago, pharmacists and technicians have been working hard to meet the challenges of the USP chapter and to improve their sterile compounding operations.  For example, current USP 797 requires only air sampling as part of an environmental monitoring program.

To help you get up to speed on this important topic, Clinical IQ is making available two presentations from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists Midyear Clinical Meeting in Anaheim, CA, in December of 2006:

Protecting Patients and Employees Through Better Work Practices

In January of 2007, Eric Kastango and Baxter Healthcare paid a visit to the Hospital Pharmacists' Association in Ireland.  The event, titled "Advances in Targeted Therapies: Where Next & How," was held at The Conrad Hotel in Dublin on January 18.   Eric Kastango and Baxter Healthcare presented Applying Aseptic Compounding Standards to Protect Patients and Employees. The topic is targeted at pharmacists and technicians who are being asked to prepare newer therapeutic agents (vaccines, monoclonal antibodies, investigational gene therapy medications) and need to consider the controls and work practices that will both protect themselves and the environment from accidental exposure and maintaining sterility.
