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.
