For nurses, keeping patients safe is the top priority. But long shifts, high acuities, confusing dosing calculations, an ever-changing list of drug interactions, and similar drug names create an environment where even the most competent clinician can make a serious medication mistake. Are you confident that you have the tools you need to avoid making a headline error? This program will give you all the resources you need to fulfill this critical aspect of your job and dramatically reduce your risk of making a life changing error. Join Cyndi Zarbano as she shares with you what she has learned working with the Board of Nursing in five states consulting and educating nurses who have received corrective action and suspension related to their medication errors! Objectives: • Compare the major categories of adverse drug events (ADEs). • Evaluate the barriers to and benefits of reporting ADEs. • Solve medication dosage calculations. • Analyze actual medication errors to avoid the pitfalls. • Demonstrate how available tools and strategies can assist with error prevention and safe medication use. • Develop new skills to predict high risk medication error scenarios.
