Safety Standards Workgroup re: SB1108

Senate Bill 1108 of 2014 requires the Secretary of Health and Mental Hygiene to convene a stakeholder workgroup to study appropriate national safety standards for mixing, reconstituting, and other similar acts routinely performed by, or under the supervision of, an oncologist, a rheumatologist, or a hematologist who administers chemotherapy, biologic therapy, supportive care medication, rheumatology therapy, or any other therapy in the treatment of cancer, a rheumatology condition, or a blood condition.
