Program Overview

Sterile compounding of IV products in hospitals is a top public health issue—there have been numerous reports of harmful and fatal errors, many involving infants or children. This symposium will review new guidelines developed through the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) national invitational Sterile Preparation Compounding Safety Summit, held in October 2011.

Speakers will review current methods used to compound sterile products and identify the quality control practices that are necessary for preparing and verifying the safety of the final product. Existing and emerging technologies for creating IV admixtures, manual and automated safeguards to help ensure the correct product is dispensed, and barriers to best practices also will be discussed.
