Aseptic processing in compounding pharmacies, of hospitals or private businesses, requires staff to have a unique skillset backed by an extensive understanding of Good Aseptic Practices. There is a clear requirement for pharmacy staff knowledge, competence and adherence to relevant standards in order to provide safe and high-quality aseptic compounding of medicinal products.

Furthermore, the Pharmacy Board of Australia requires pharmacy staff to identify and undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities that address the identified CPD needs as part of becoming competent in complex compounding.

To support the compounding pharmacy industry, SeerPharma has developed this training course to  give participants a comprehensive understanding of aseptic processing principles.
