Clostridium difficile: Can you smell the new updates? 

The purpose of this continuing education program is to present updates in the management of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI). The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA) have released updated guidelines for Clostridium difficile infections. This continuing education program will review select studies that directly compare metronidazole to oral vancomycin since this guideline no longer recommends metronidazole as a first line agent for mild CDI. Strategies for first recurrence and second or subsequent recurrence will also be highlighted. This continuing education program will allow clinicians to become more familiar with recently updated strategies in managing CDI.

Taming the Jungle:  Completing an Assessment of Risk in a Community Pharmacy to Comply with USP <800>

USP <800> becomes official and enforceable on December 1, 2019.   Prior to that, and at least every 12 months thereafter, pharmacies that handle hazardous drugs must complete an Assessment of Risk for the drugs and dosage forms on the NIOSH List of Antineoplastic and Other Hazardous Drugs. These drugs are not limited to antineoplastics, but include a wide variety of commonly-dispensed drugs that have properties that can be hazardous to personnel. This session will provide a framework for developing a pharmacy’s Assessment of Risk, and include practical tips to use during the process.
