Feedback for Seeking Feedback on Proposed Implementation Timeline for NAPRA's Sterile Compounding Standards

Pharmacist  ·  June 30, 2016

I believe that the 2 year time frame that is proposed is an minimum at best. The time it would take to contact contractors, and design the space etc will take time and I am not sure all pharmacies could comply within the 2 year time frame. As well, would hospitals be included in this time frame? If pharmacies could not meet this time frame , are we putting patients at risk of not receiving their medication, ie pain pumps for intrathecal use. If compounded medications must be shipped from another pharmacy not located in the patients area then we run into stability issues (temperature sensitive drugs).
