Bellevue, WA—Eric S. Kastango, MBA, RPh, FASHP, has announced he will be available to pharmacy professionals for consultation on USP Chapter 797 requirements at Pharmacy OneSource’s booth during the upcoming 2007 ASHP Summer Meeting and Exhibition.
"If you stop by the Pharmacy OneSource booth, I would be happy to answer any questions about USP Chapter 797 or compounding in general," said Kastango. "The USP chapter will be released this month, so now is the time to get serious."
Kastango will be available at Pharmacy OneSource's booth from 12:00-2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 26. He will also be giving a "hot topic" presentation USP 797 Update 2007 from 8-11 a.m. on Wednesday, June 25 at the meeting.
Attendees are encouraged to chat with Kastango about their current USP 797 concerns and sign up for a free gap analysis that will help them measure their current compliance level with the new standards.
"Eric's expertise is extremely valuable to the pharmacy profession, especially since most hospitals are not yet fully compliant with USP 797," said Keith Streckenbach, Executive Vice President of Pharmacy OneSource. "We base Simplifi 797 on Eric's comprehensive experience so pharmacists can have access to this essential information at all times."
