Measuring up to medication safety: Where do you stand?

Tuesday March 23, 2010

Program Overview:
Medications are among the most common interventions used to treat medical conditions. So it should come as no surprise that adverse drug events—medication-related events that can result in injury—are a substantial source of preventable harm to hospitalized patients. While we all have a goal to prevent patient harm, how do we know we are being successful?

Measuring the level of safety is fundamental to improvement. Yet, measuring medication safety has long been a challenge. Historically, measurement efforts have focused on practitioners reporting medication errors, which, at best, uncovers just a fraction of the errors, most of them harmless.

This webinar will look at methods to measure medication safety within your organization. At the end of the webinar you will be able to determine if there are problems, the extent of the problem(s), and if improvement efforts have been successful.
