Date:8/31/2009

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Baxa Corporation announces the launch of seven new training modules offered in The CriticalPoint Virtual Compounder training series. With these new modules, The Virtual Compounder training now comprises 10 self-paced, ACPE-approved modules that offer participants a total of 10 hours of ACPE credit. This innovative series of training lessons allows users not only to view, read and memorize materials, but to demonstrate a clear understanding and proficiency in USP < 797 > sterile compounding concepts.

The new Virtual Compounder modules teach users the skills necessary to be proficient in the following subjects: Daily Cleaning Activities, Monthly Cleaning Activities, Hazardous Spill Clean-up, Biological Safety Cabinet (BSC) Cleaning, Compounding Aseptic Containment Isolator (CACI) Cleaning, Compounding Aseptic Isolator (CAI) Cleaning and Performing Volumetric Air Sampling. And along with the other subjects: Garbing and Gowning, Solution Preparation and Laminar Air Flow Workbench (LAFW) Cleaning, each module covers the related requirements for USP < 797 > compliance. The complete series of training programs is owned by CriticalPoint and is marketed under the Baxa Corporation brand.

"The Virtual Compounder training series offers pharmacies a new way to provide cost-effective, hands-on training to all pharmacy personnel," states Peter Campanella, Baxa Corporation Director of Clinical Education. Written by industry experts, the training details specific practice requirements for USP < 797 > compliance in an interactive format that is unlike more-traditional training experiences. "The CriticalPoint curriculum," Campanella continues, "provides step-by-step programs that build a solid foundation of best practice for pharmacists and technicians involved in sterile compounding activities."

Authored by top industry experts and ASHP members Eric S. Kastango, Jim Wagner, Patricia Kienle, Luci Power, Holly Simmons and Kate Douglass among others; CriticalPoint is a comprehensive solution for understanding best practice in sterile compounding, managing training requirements, evaluating personnel competency and documenting personnel certification. Not only is the training extensive, but the software incorporates a Learning Management System (LMS) that allows pharmacy managers to track all pharmacy training conveniently. Together, the LMS capabilities and the expert written training provide pharmacies with a one-stop solution to USP < 797 > training compliance.

CriticalPoint is a product of CriticalPoint, LLC. Baxa Corporation markets the CriticalPoint compliance training modules as part of its Productivity and Compliance Tools (PACT) product line, which includes the Skills Training, Academics and Resources (STAR) Center classroom-based training for USP < 797 > compliance and aseptic compounding. Through the STAR Center's hands-on training programming and the CriticalPoint Web-based training modules, Baxa provides a complete solution for pharmacy compliance training in sterile compounding.
