There is a well-established national reporting scheme in the UK for errors made during aseptic preparation. This workshop will give information about how this scheme works in practice, and key findings and trends from the reports.

The delegates will participate in the development of documentation that could be used for a similar scheme in their own countries. If other national schemes are in existence this would also be an opportunity to compare and contrast them.

The moderators will also discuss the main types of compounding errors, eg concentration errors, contamination, incorrect route etc. Ways to manage errors of this type, such as use of ready-to-administer or ready-to-use products, use of standard doses etc will also be explored. A second interactive session will allow participant to share best practice on error management.
