Joint Summit on preventing occupational exposure to HMPs 30 January 2024 at Fórsa in Dublin

9 Feb 2024 2:51 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

A joint summit on preventing occupational exposure to hazardous Medicinal products (HMPs) was held at Forsa’s office January 30th.  The European Biosafety Network (EBN), HPAI and the NAHPT called on the Health Service Executive (HSE) to urgently update their Guideline on Safe Handling of Cytotoxic Drugs published in February 2022 to include updates from the EU Carcinogens, mutagens and reprotoxic substances directive (CMRD) 2022 updated guidelines that come into force from April 5th 2024. 

The HPAI welcome this call to action and urge the HSE to expedite the harmonised labelling of HMPs and adoption of the ETUI’s list of HMPs in Ireland and to implement strategies to support and protect the healthcare of in particular pharmacy staff in Ireland.
