CriticalPoint has expanded its online offerings to now include 503B eLearning.  The web-based curriculum will ensure participants acquire a comprehensive understanding of how and why 503B practice evolved. These lessons also summarize each of the FDA draft and final guidances so that learners know where to seek guidance for 503B practice. Successful completion of this course will prepare pharmacists to fulfill the role required by the Compounding Quality Act (known as the Drug Quality and Safety Act or DQSA) which requires that drugs are compounded in compliance with the cGMPs under the direct supervision of a licensed pharmacist.
