Pharmacists in all practice settings.
The profession of pharmacy is changing with newer medications being approved by the FDA, and electronic prescribing being approved in all practice settings. These changes along with advances in technology and expansion of health care due to the Affordable Care Act require pharmacists to be alert to possible medication errors that may arise in their practice sites. Pharmacists must adapt a practical application of patient safety information to bring this knowledge back to their practice sites for medication improvements. This lecture fulfills the NYS requirement of 3 hours of formal continuing education on strategies and techniques to reduce medication and prescription errors.
1. Discuss the frequency of occurrence of medication errors and the estimated costs to the health care system in the United States.
2. Define medication errors, and common types and causes that occur in pharmacies.
3. Review the risk factors associated with common errors including, but not limited to health literary.
4. Describe inattentional blindness and ways to avoid errors in dispensing.
5. List the key elements of medication use and benefit associated with each.
6. Recognize common errors in electronic prescriptions and identify the appropriate interventions needed.
7. Discuss the importance of liability insurance and the risk associated with errors.
8. Identify reference sources available to pharmacists for more information.
