2015 Update on The Joint Commission Medication-Related Standards

Program Overview:

Understanding and implementing The Joint Commission's (TJC) Medication Management standards continue to be a challenge for some organizations. While much emphasis is placed on these standards as minimal expectations for safety, these standards are commonly scored as noncompliant during hospital surveys. Join ISMP as we describe the most troublesome medication management standards and National Patient Safety Goals, as well as discuss successful approaches taken by healthcare organizations to accomplish the intent of these standards. A second presentation will provide personal insight into the application of these standards, based on recent Joint Commission survey at a large, non-profit, teaching hospital. The speakers will share opportunities discovered at both the pharmacy and health-system level.

Intended Audience:
Interdisciplinary teams are encouraged to attend together:
  • Hospital and Health System Leadership
  • Quality and Risk Management Leaders
  • Physician, Pharmacy, and Nursing Leaders
  • Patient and Medication Safety Officers
  • Frontline Pharmacists, Nurses, Technicians
  • Medical Staff
Following completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:
  • List three of the most problematic  medication management-related standards and National Patient Safety Goals by organizations surveyed in 2014
  • Identify the most common reasons why organizations are scored noncompliant on medication management standards
  • Cite the changes and any new interpretation of the requirements related to the medication-related Joint Commission standards
  • Cite three areas of focus on medication management by surveyors during a recent Joint Commission survey
