KPIC Sterile Compounding Webinar Series: Core Competencies for Sterile Compounding Personnel (Pharmacy Technicians)


Core Competencies for Sterile Compounding Personnel
 
Program Description: This activity will review the personnel competency requirements outlined in USC <797> and provide participants with a clear understanding of how to complete and assess these competency requirements. 
 
Statement of Need: Sterile compounding is an important part of patient and pharmaceutical care in the US healthcare system.  Proper technique and training are paramount to preparing quality pharmaceutical products that are free of contaminants.   A 2007 research article published in the American Journal of Health-system Pharmacy reported that sterile compounding training varied widely in US pharmacy schools and that only 13% of Deans felt graduates had adequate training in this area of practice.   Pharmacy technicians also play a vital role in this area of pharmacy practice and training programs for these individuals varies widely as well.   A series of live webinars and adapted home study programs were planned to address this much needed foundational training.
