HealthTrust presents…“Hazardous Drugs 101: How to Protect Yourself”
Please Note: Continuing education credit is only available to those attending the session live. CE credit is not available when accessing the program on demand.
Hazardous guidelines are highlighted by USP 800; however since they have only been published for a few years, it is important to emphasize the importance of those guidelines in addition to the equipment that is available to protect healthcare personnel from exposure to hazardous drugs. The purpose of this presentation is to highlight the importance of personal protective equipment for compounding hazardous drugs. In addition, the equipment needed to ensure the safety of healthcare personnel during compounding of hazardous drugs (CSTDs) will be addressed.
