Medication Safety Series
Can our profession be made mistake proof? Learn how human factors engineering helps ensure medication safety and how you can apply “mistake proofing” in your organization. In other sessions focused on medication safety, discover how you can apply the TeamSTEPPS™ model to improve communication and optimize patient outcomes; use tracer rounds to reveal weaknesses in your organization’s medication-use process; sharpen your standardization skills in pediatrics; validate sterile compounding of IV robotic technology; set up strategies for promoting safety in anesthesia/OR; and win C-suite support for elevating the role of the medication safety officer to the corporate level.
How much of your time is spent performing point-of-care clinical roles? It can and will be more...depending on your mastery of informatics. In these six programs, you’ll learn how you can leverage technology to achieve the future pharmacy practice model, optimize automation, align meaningful use regulations with EHRs and the content of your CPOE order sets, establish credentialing for pharmacy informaticians, and use mobile devices to enhance your personal/professional life.
