Program Description

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.

Program Objectives

1. Cite the document that defines drugs that are hazardous to personnel
2. Identify the drugs and dosage forms eligible for an Assessment of Risk
3. Describe elements of an Assessment of Risk
4. List examples of alternative containment strategies and work practices that could be incorporated into an Assessment of Risk
