On Tuesday, May 14, 2019 the Bux-Mont Chapter hosted an event at the Buck Hotel, in Feasterville, PA.  Michele Sheaffer reviewed PSHP highlights including Sterile compounding Summit, the recruitment for an Executive Director and proposed Technician Bill. She announced that the PSHP Annual Assembly will be October 28-29, 2019. Also, an update was given for the Bux-Mont chapter as a Midyear review. She encouraged attendees to vote in the annual election in which the following offices are available: President elect, Secretary, 2 board member positions, a technician representative and a student representative. An email to be forthcoming. 

There was a presentation by Holly Ouellette, RPh from Briova Rx Specialty Pharmacy on Oral Chemotherapy medications for Breast, Ovarian and Prostate Cancers.  

Her presentation was followed by a Medication Safety case study presentation by ISMP fellows, Farzana Samad, PharmD and Samantha Burton, PharmD.   

They reviewed the recent occurrence at Vanderbilt Medical Center in which a patient received vecuronium instead of versed. The steps leading up to the error were reviewed along with the circumstances around the error. Types of errors and ways to improve systems were discussed. The interactive presentation facilitated discussion among the attendees on how safe practices would be implemented to improve patient safety.

There was a wonderful turn out and active attendee participation. Have a wonderful summer and see everyone in the Fall.
