TRUSTED FOR FOUR DECADES.
Medication errors are the most common type of medical errors in healthcare. Adverse drug events (ADEs) account for 30% of all hospital-acquired conditions, most of which are preventable. The U.S Dept. of HHS has set a goal to reduce ADEs by 50% to combat this issue, and CMS and TJC dedicated resources for preventative measures through education and regulations.
This program will provide 60+ tips hospitals can use to reduce medication errors and improve patient safety using evidence-based literature. Our expert will review CMS and TJC standards on medication management, recent tag changes, The Institute of Medicine’s report on medication errors, and trigger tools that can be used to identify adverse events.
