Abstract:
Increasing numbers of oncology/haematology patients attending Midland Regional Hospital Tullamore (MRHT) has increased the workload of the Regional Oncology Haematology Pharmacy (ROHP) compounding unit. Staff restrictions require optimisation of current workflow practices. This audit (November 2010 and June 2011) focused on workflow in the aseptic compounding unit. In MRHT, ‘go-aheads’ are given by nurses and doctors. Drugs are compounded on an individual patient basis, except for batch production of bevacizumab and cetuximab. Focusing on the workflow process and comparing individual versus batch production in this audit may identify trends to improve efficiency.
