Purpose

This book is designed to assist medical professionals in going beyond the basic knowledge of
sterile compounding but also into understanding why the United States Pharmacopeial Convention developed the 6 General Chapters for Compounding.

This book covers:

  • Policies and procedures for aseptic techniques USP <797> Pharmaceutical Compounding Sterile Preparation
  • Proper use of supplies and equipment including USP <1176> Prescription Balances and Volumetric Apparatus.
  • Guidelines to procedures necessary to perform calculations properly when compounding USP <1160> Pharmaceutical Calculations in Prescription Compounding.
  • Responsibilities and Practices to assure USP <1163> Quality Assurance in Pharmaceutical Compounding are met.
  • Guidelines regarding the handling of hazardous drugs in order to protect both patient and health care professional USP <800> Hazardous Drugs — Handling in Healthcare Settings.
  • Guidelines on how to extemporaneously compound preparations that are of acceptable strength, quality and purity USP<795> Pharmaceutical Compounding —Nonsterile Preparations.

This book is a platform to build upon and refers the participant to various USP websites which
are updated regularly with new information to keep you up-to-date and current with compounding practices. Many USP chapters are referenced and not discussed in length, therefore it is left up
to the participant to follow end of the chapter references to obtain more knowledge and a deeper understanding of the topic if so desired.

The book is formulated in such a manner that each chapter is comprehensive and builds upon the knowledge gained from previous chapters. Therefore, it is vital, that the participant begin reading with the first chapter. Each chapter has a set of Objectives prior to the opening statement and a set of Self-Assessment questions at the end of each chapter. This book can be used by either a Pharmacist or a Pharmacy Technician since a separate set of Pharmacist and Pharmacy Technician
Objectives and Self-Assessment questions are included for each Chapter, as well as separate ACPE exams. Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians will not receive the same amount of total CE credit because of the Live (hands-on) section of this program is different. (Please see ACPE statement page for credit hours listed for each program.)

It will be necessary for readers who are unfamiliar with certain terms, conversions, formulas, etc, to memorize facts, in order to utilize the information within this book. To obtain CE credit an evaluation and written comprehensive post test must be successfully completed with a score of 75% or better, as well as completed hands-on process validation checklists. The process validation checklists need to be submitted at least 31 days prior to the program’s expiration date 06/30/2020. Please read the enclosed instructions and complete all forms to be submitted for CE credit.
