News, Weather and Sports in Pharmaceutical Compounding

Published by American College of Apothecaries


Due to the complexity of governmental agencies involved in the handling of hazardous drugs, this presentation will simplify the complexity by looking at the individual agencies, their scope and their responsibilities as they relate to pharmaceutical compounding. The role of the USP and the individual state boards of pharmacy will be presented and described regarding their scope and responsibilities and how they interrelate with the federal agencies handling hazardous drugs. Also discussed will be the definitions and terminology involved in the agency’s documentation for clarification. The purpose of this presentation will be to break down each component, look at the relationships between them and clarify their application to the day-to-day practice of pharmaceutical compounding.

1. Describe the role of the OSHA in pharmaceutical compounding.
2. Differentiate the role of the USP, NIOSH, OSHA and EPA in pharmaceutical compounding.
3. Discuss the roles of the individual state boards of pharmacy in enforcing standards, regulations and laws related to pharmaceutical compounding.

3. Identify situations where there may need to be corrected for safety of compounding personnel and patients.
4. List some activities that should be adhered to for protecting personnel and their immediate families from potential contamination that may be carried from the workplace to the home.
