USP 800: Where are We Now?

Webinar

ASCO recently shared news that they received clarification from the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) around the newly revised USP General Chapter <797> Pharmaceutical Compounding Standards – Sterile Preparations and USP General Chapter <800> Hazardous Drugs – Handling in Healthcare Settings, which become official December 1, 2019.  It has been suggested that this may not apply to most U.S. oncology practices that administer and prepare oncological agents.

However, as rules and regulations vary across states, it is recommended that  practices contact their respective state pharmacy board, medical board, regulatory agency, and/or accrediting organization to determine how the standards may apply to their specific situation.

To learn more about what this clarification means for your practice, MSHO is hosting a webinar on August 22nd from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm EST.  Questions may be submitted in advance to mmakarewicz@msho.org.  All questions will be addressed during the webinar.
