Safe Handling: Implementing Evidence-Based Standards

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Exposure to hazardous drugs is a major concern among oncology nurses. Have you ever felt the policies and procedures in place at your institution aren’t as effective as they could be? Review evidence-based standards of practice and learn the actions you can take for implementation. You’ll get an in-depth look at a successful program at a large, complex healthcare institution and hear from speakers who will provide guidance for implementation, overcoming barriers, and measuring outcomes and share lessons learned.


  1. Discuss the components of a comprehensive hazardous drug safety and health program.
  2. Describe strategies for standardizing hazardous drug safe handling practices.
  3. Initiate a plan for preventing environmental contamination and personnel exposure to antineoplastic drugs in one’s own practice.

Please note: Preconference sessions require separate registration. Register now.
