With the announcement from USP, CriticalPoint will be postponing the webinar series until the USP Appointed Panel has made a decision on the pending appeals, which is expected to be announced in December. At that time, we will work to reschedule and will send out registration information. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience but want to ensure that you are receiving training that reflects current standards.
The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) is sponsoring a series of 6 webinars intended to improve state inspection of sterile compounding pharmacies through a review of the changes to USP 797 reflected in the 2019 version. The series will begin in September and continue twice per month through November. Each offering will be 60 minutes long with approximately 45 minutes of content followed by a 15 minute Q/A period. Webinars will be recorded and made available to those who were not able to participate in the live forum. One hour of ACPE credit will be awarded for each webinar (or recording) completed. Participation in the webinars will be limited to state board of pharmacy inspectors and other invited regulators.
During the series, CriticalPoint subject matter experts will identify changes to the sterile compounding requirements as well as address information on the behaviors, standard operating procedures, documentation and training by which Licensees may demonstrate compliance. Information on specific offerings in the series is listed below.
