Press Release for May 18, 2020 - Download
TEMECULA, Calif. – Nufactor, Inc., a subsidiary of FFF Enterprises, Inc. is pleased to be recognized as the first pharmacy to achieve Ig Certified Pharmacist (IgCP®) credentialing for all of their California pharmacists. The IgCP® credentialing provides assessment, validation and documentation of the knowledge, skills, and overall clinical competence of pharmacists managing and dispensing immunoglobulin (Ig) therapy. It is the only nationally recognized certification for Ig pharmacists.
A Culture of Revolutionary Improvements
Nufactor's decision to work towards achieving the first IgCP® credentialing for registered and licensed pharmacists is a demonstration of their ongoing commitment to Ig excellence. "I am extremely proud of our team for their achievement. Our support in this endeavor was not only for the improvement of standardizing pharmacy practices within our organization, but also for aligning with nationally recognized standards as set forth by the Immunoglobulin National Society (IgNS). Through this accomplishment, we are fulfilling our mission of making a difference in our patients' lives, by providing them with highly skilled pharmacy support and quality care every time. Our plans included IgCP® credentialing for our all pharmacists, but unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic has forestalled our exam in North Carolina. We will have all North Carolina staff tested as soon as the exam is available again. Once open, we will follow with credentialing for our Texas location shortly thereafter," said Leslie Vaughan, RPh, IgCP®, chief operations officer.
Relentless Focus on Excellence
The Immunoglobulin National Society (IgNS) is committed to the IgCP® credentialing process, which provides assessment, validation and documentation of the knowledge, skills and overall clinical competence of pharmacists managing and dispensing Ig therapy. The IgCP® credentialing is the only nationally-recognized certification for Ig pharmacists. It meets nationally-recognized standards that are reliable and legally defensible measurements of Ig pharmacists' knowledge and skills. IgCP® credentialing validates that pharmacists have met stringent requirements for knowledge and experience, and are qualified to provide competent Ig care. "Ig therapy is one of the most complex clinical fields, requiring pharmacists to possess specialized expertise to ensure safe clinical practices and best patient outcomes. Earning the prestigious IgCP® credential demonstrates the highest dedication to the practice of Ig therapy, and merits recognition of the pharmacist's knowledge and clinical competence," said Luba Sobolevsky, PharmD, IgCP®, executive director of IgNS.
