KPIC Aseptic Technique Training Course


KPIC Aseptic Technique Training Program
Registration closes:  September 18, 2014
 
Program Title:   Aseptic Technique Training Program
 
By registering for this program, you understand and agree that you must complete the home study portion in order to attend the live portion of the program.  Upon registering for this live event, the SCCP will enroll you in the home study program and the textbook will be mailed to the address you provided during registration.
 
The home study pre-requisite portion of this program provides 7.5 hours of continuing pharmacy credit (0.75 CEUs) and the live portion of this program provides 16 hours of continuing pharmacy credit (1.6 CEUs).  Participants who fully and successfully complete both portions may receive a maximum of 23.5 hours of continuing pharmacy credit (2.35 CEUs).  Upon successful completion of the entire homestudy program, you will be allowed to attend the live portion.  Cut-off for successful completion of self-study will be no later than 11:59pm on 09/30/2014.
 
Target Audience:  This course is targeted for Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians responsible for preparing sterile compounded preparations.   This course will provide core training for individuals new to sterile compounding or individuals seeking to review their knowledge and skills in sterile compounding and aseptic technique.
 
Program Description:  The KPIC Aseptic Technique Training Program is an intensive practice-based educational activity designed to equip pharmacists and technicians with immersive, hands-on training in the compounding of aseptic products. Learners will be provided training in aseptic technique and objective evaluations following the preparation of Compounded Sterile Products (CSPs) according to USP <797> regulations through the use of didactic training, observation, coaching and practical skill assessments.  The live session provides hands-on skills training focused on the current requirements and situations most likely to be encountered in a sterile compounding environment. Learners must successfully demonstrate competency via hands-on simulations in the state of the art compounding facility.
 
As a pre-requisite to the practice-based activity, the participant must first complete a home study component that will prepare the student for the intensive hands-on training. This self-study activity provides comprehensive instruction in current compounding techniques, and standards of practice for successful sterile compounding.
 
Participant Requirements: To receive continuing education credit for this program, participant must be a registered pharmacist or registered pharmacy technician. Participant must physically be able to stand for a minimum of 2 hour periods and must have manual dexterity to allow manipulation of needles, syringes and other products utilized to prepare sterile products. Participant must also have full range of motion to complete physical tasks required in the compounding processes.
