CriticalPoint’s Best Practices for Nonsterile to Sterile Compounding Live Training is a one-and-a-half day program designed as an advanced offering of the CriticalPoint Boot Camp Live Training Series. This course is designed for those who manage or perform nonsterile to sterile compounding and have either attended CriticalPoint’s Best Practices for Nonhazardous Sterile to Sterile Compounding class or already possess sound fundamental sterile compounding skills. In addition to providing a comprehensive understanding of regulatory requirements, the program also focuses on best practices for nonsterile to sterile compounding.

Once registered, participants are provided access to selected CriticalPoint eLessons to complete before attending the live training. Once onsite, learners participate in engaging lectures and valuable interactive exercises designed to amplify important information from the lectures as well as practice new skills. The course is held at the CriticalPoint Center for Training and Research (CCTR) which has a state-of-the-art classroom as well as two ISO 7 buffer rooms, an ISO 8 anteroom, a C-SCA and a large variety of primary engineering controls. Topics include: getting what you need ready to go (physical plant, components and vendors); methods of sterilization; process verification; quality release and best practice recommendations for garbing, cleaning, environmental monitoring and personnel sampling. Please refer to the learning objectives for more detailed information.

Attendees will gain an understanding of why nonsterile to sterile compounding is such a serious undertaking and gain an appreciation of the level of control necessary to ensure safe compounded sterile preparations for patients. The faculty have demonstrated expertise in running sterile compounding operations. Aside from the program lectures, participants are provided with many valuable CriticalPoint tools that may be used as a basis for their own facility practice.
