This document outlines the process for training VMSC faculty and staff on pharmacy processes, and applies to all faculty and staff that will have pharmacy permissions in the VMSC. All faculty and staff must be trained prior to having pharmacy permissions and must be retrained yearly by pharmacy staff.


Training must be completed and if procedures are not followed then remedial training will be required. Training completion will be documented yearly. If not completed, pharmacy-related SANDI permissions and Cubex access will be removed until training can be completed.
