Hazardous Drug Handling Course Offered by Baxa for Nurses, Doctors

March 19, 2008 - Baxa Corp. said the latest addition to its STAR (Skills Training, Academics and Resources) Center course offerings is "Safe Handling and Preparation of Hazardous Drugs," developed so nurses, pharmacists and physicians can prepare, handle or administer hazardous drugs.

The course will be held at Baxa's STAR Center in Englewood, CO April 24-25, with subsequent course dates June 19-20 and Aug. 21-22.

The 10-hour course combines hands-on experience with regulatory compliance and industry best practice to provide complete training in hazardous drug compounding and safe handling. The course is designed for front-line pharmacists, technicians, nurses, physicians, pharmacy managers and nursing managers, covering concepts that affect hazardous drug policies and procedures, from engineering controls to the proper use of closed-system drug transfer devices. Course material focuses on proper aseptic techniques and the principles and requirements of hazardous drug (HD) waste and disposal.

Baxa developed the core curriculum with subject matter experts in HD, environmental consulting and USP 797 to prepare professionals for the chapter guideline changes announced in December 2007.
