This webinar is a must-see for every healthcare provider who works with cancer patients. Participating will help you ensure your facility isn’t unknowingly exposing patients to dangerous infections.
Our focus will be on compounding medications and infusion of intravenous medications. These practices occur in many outpatient settings but unless everyone is correctly trained and proper practices, standards, and regulations are enforced patient and provider safety is at risk.
This webinar will:
- discuss an outbreak of fungal bloodstream infections due to improper medication compounding and poor infection control practices at an outpatient oncology clinic,
- review the oversight and enforcement landscape of safety standards in outpatient settings, and
- provide resources to ensure that your clinic follows recommended infection control and prevention practices.
