USP 797 Learning Boosted by Virtual Clean Room
According to an article in Pharmacy Practice News, by David Bronstein, Purdue University’s College of Pharmacy has developed a three-dimensional (3-D) virtual clean room to teach its students how to comply with USP Chapter 797 requirements for sterile IV preparations.“The primary goal of the program,“ according to the article, “the first of its kind in pharmacy education, according to the instructors—was to enhance the students’ ability to confidently follow the sterile-compounding requirements. Another important aim was for students to gain a better understanding of the extent to which a typical hospital is at risk for making errors during IV drug preparation.“
The success of the teaching program was also reported in the American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education (2011;75:7).
