Prevention of Medical Errors in Nursing Practice Course is organized by i3 Health and will be held from Jun 27, 2017 - Jun 26, 2019. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.0 ANCC contact hour.
Target Audience :
Nurses, nurse practitioners, and clinical nurse specialists.
Tumor lysis syndrome (TLS) is an oncological emergency characterized by hyperuricemia, hyperkalemia, hyperphosphatemia, and hypocalcemia. These electrolyte imbalances may be severe enough to cause acute renal failure, cardiac arrhythmias, seizures, and even death. While there are prophylactic measures that greatly reduce the severity of TLS and its manifestations, patients at risk for TLS must be identified and treated prior to the appearance of either laboratory or clinical symptoms to effectively reduce or prevent the syndrome.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
• Differentiate the four categories of medication errors
• Identify challenges in avoiding medical errors unique to at-risk populations
• Describe best practices in error analysis and reporting
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
