One of the most crucial responsibilities of pharmacy personnel is the proper preparation of parenteral medications. It is extremely important that all parenteral medications are prepared in a manner that reduces the possibility of contamination. This comprehensive 50-hour program explores all types of parenteral medications–the terminology and equipment commonly associated with them, as well as the various methods used in their preparation–and will prepare you to work with sterile compounding, IV admixtures and aseptic preparation. The program will also include key review and extensive classroom demonstrations and labs covering required subjects including: aseptic/sterile techniques, IV admixtures, critical area contamination factors, environmental monitoring, facilities, equipment and supplies, sterile pharmaceutical calculations and terminology, sterile pharmaceutical compounding documentation, quality assurance procedures, aseptic preparation procedures including proper gowning and gloving technique, handling of cytotoxic and hazardous drugs, general conduct in the controlled area, as well as other important topics, demonstrations and labs.
