Self-Advocating for Protection Against Hazardous Drugs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Hazardous drugs can cause serious acute and chronic effects. While recommendations for safe handling have been published and available for many years, occupational exposures are untold. Awareness of this issue is increasing, and state regulation mandating the development of hazardous drug programs is needed. Do you have concerns regarding exposure to hazardous drugs, such as lack of safety measures, inadequate personal protective equipment, or lack of a safety culture to use full protection? Are you doing everything necessary to protect your safety? Hear real-life stories of nurses advocating for safe practices and get information and tools to help advocate for approval of state legislation.
