Despite smart pumps with built-in dosing limits, clinicians are free to bypass the drug libraries, causing potential adverse events to occur. Many hospitals struggle to ensure the use of smart pump drug libraries

Register for this two-part online seminar, June 26 and July 10, and hear how two pharmacy directors successfully led their large hospital groups, with over 13 hospitals each, to use standardized drug libraries.

You'll learn how to:

  • Improve clinical compliance
  • Engage senior leadership
  • Manage crucial conversations with frontline staff
  • Develop education
  • Understand and use pump data

About the National Coalition

The National Coalition for Infusion Therapy Safety was launched in March 2015, in Annapolis, MD.  Since that time, four teams were formed to work on the issues identified by the 100+ stakeholders that attended. The four teams are focused on: (1) improving drug library compliance, (2) reducing non-clinically actionable pump alarms, (3) disseminating multiple-line education developed by HumanEra, (4) and, developing infusion-therapy-safety-related questions hospital C-suite executives should ask themselves to determine if they have safe systems in place. The teams are planning deliverables that include Patient Safety Seminars, Safety Innovation Series white papers, and regional events.
