Reducing Medication Errors

Evidence shows that medication errors are the leading cause of harm in US hospitals, with more than six adverse drug events for every 100 admissions. Patients in the ambulatory setting fare no better, as studies suggest as many as 25% of outpatients experience an adverse drug event. Join Dr. David Bates and a team of leading experts on medication safety to learn how modern interventions can keep your patients safe.

"This was an excellent expert practice series, well-organized succinct presentation regarding safety i.e. implementing the electronic prescribing.  Your lecture was greatly enhanced by your experience and expertise as a Physician, and as a Professor of Medicine.  As well as,  Research Scientist @ RAND Health.

Great lecture series with up to date information concerning effective prevention strategies on reducing medication errors regarding adverse drug events i.e. preventable or ameliorable on all average drug events i.e. E prescribing.  Interesting research regarding transition of care and medication i.e. E prescribing decreased

errors.  Again, a lack of communications between caregivers i.e. hospitalist, on-call MD, PCP ERP, this emphasizes the importance of a case manager for discharge and computer written transfer of care at the time of discharge, thus in an effort to avoid multiple errors.

Again, an excellent power point with up-to-date research addressing adoption of

E-prescribing.  Actually, I am surprised regarding the rate of errors found in this research series.  Today with the computers, printed orders, E-prescribing and barcoding, one would believe the errors would have been decreased in all healthcare settings.

I agree, careful monitoring with improved communication and using the newer technology such as E-prescribing, as well as, clear communication in the transitions in care @ discharge will all help to decreased medication errors in the elderly and patients across the board.

Thank you.
