Instructor: Jim Mullowney
Product ID: 706096
Training Level: Intermediate to Advanced

  • Duration: 60 Min
In December of this year, USP 800 will take effect. Each entity that handles Hazardous Drugs (HD’s) must have a designated person who is qualified and trained to be responsible for developing and implementing appropriate procedures overseeing entity compliance with USP 800 and other applicable laws. This course will show you how to determine which of the almost 300 HD’s you need to handle in the same manner in the pharmacy and as they are excreted by the patient. We will look at recommendations from the international Society of oncology pharmacy practitioners (ISOPP) on the list of drugs with excretion times as well as other sources.

Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Do you know that Entities that handle HD’s must incorporate the standards of USP chapter 800 into their occupational safety plan? Each entity must have a “designated person responsible for compliance”.

When developing a comprehensive hazardous drug handling plan it is important to know which drugs need to be controlled as they are exiting the patient’s body. This training will help in developing the plan as a requirement of USP 800. We will discuss the safe collection and disposal of human waste as well as materials that came in contact with the drugs in the waste.

USP 800 takes control of some hazardous drugs outside the pharmacy walls. As many of you know some HD’s are excreted in the sweat saliva urine and feces. Control of exposure to the nurses handling the patient, people changing the linens as well as housekeeping need to be informed and protected.

This course will give a brief history of chemotherapy and why we need to protect people that handle these drugs even in the patient excretions. We will look at the development of the Niosh hazardous drug list and compare with the excretion data that is provided on the drug package insert. Most of the almost 300 hazardous drugs are not dangerous in the patient waste, we will look at the ones that are and how your pharmacy can decide which drugs need to be contained in the hospital setting and how to contain these drugs.

We will discuss other agencies that regulate the HD’s even in human waste and how to comply.

In this course you will learn how to evaluate your pharmacy formulary and decide what drugs will be managed in the excretions when developing a comprehensive HD program. This will help in understanding the personnel that will need training, personal protection equipment, medical monitoring and other provisions in USP 800.
