The human factor and technical conditions in the process of shaping the safety of medical staff during the treatment of cancer diseases – an original concept of drug packaging using CAD software and 3D bioprinting

Keywords: cancer, anticancer drugs, AutoCAD, 3D bioprinting, pharmaceutical industry, medical staff, safety

Abstract

Purpose: The use of 3D printers for printing tablets, CAD software for 3D modeling for medical purposes, as well as the impact of the human factor on the safety of medical staff during the care of a cancer patient were studied.

Method: concept based on statistical data from the National Cancer Registry and information on bioprinters and 3D printers. Concept using AutoCAD software as well as statistical data related to accidents at work of medical personnel.

Findings: The concept of packaging anticancer drugs for an individual patient with the use of AutoCAD software as well as bioprints and 3D printers and its impact on the safety of medical staff.

Value: Thanks to 3D bioprinting and packaging of anticancer drugs, it will be possible to conduct further research on the treatment of cancer patients around the world with drug packages, to develop new technologies for the production of anticancer drugs, to increase access to drugs. The concept may force the standardization of treatment of oncological patients, as well as changes in the procedures for drug approval. The presented concept is the basis for further research. The concept will also affect the protection of medical personnel against human errors as well as the improvement of occupational health and safety.

Paper type: practical.
