About: The IV Update course is designed for IV certified pharmacists who wish to earn 3 hours of CE credit to expand their professional skills and expertise in areas relating to sterile intravenous admixtures. This year’s course will focus on the examination of processes that lead to medication errors, and the examination of the 2012 outbreak of fungal meningitis that caused sterile compounding personnel to look for ways of ensuring they are in full compliance with USP<797>.
This program was originally offered as a Pre-Seminar program of the Pharmacy Practice Seminar (PPS) event held on September 12, 2014 in Austin, Texas.
Registration for the IV Update is open to any pharmacist. (Click here for the Pharmacy Technician version of this activity.)
