– Medication Errors 101: “The Five Rights…You’re Doing It Wrong (x5)” Webinar

October 9, 2019 @ 1:00 pm

Don’t keep making these dangerous mistakes, join us for the – Medication Errors 101: “The Five Rights…You’re Doing It Wrong (x5)” webinar.

October 9 | 1:00 PM CST

We have all probably been confronted at some point with the notion that paramedics, not unlike other healthcare providers, are prone to medication errors. Yeah, yeah, we know it’s not you… we’re talking about those other people. Problem is that we often commit errors and have no idea; we don’t and often can’t recognize them on our own. But have you ever taken the time to consider why they might occur?

Questions to be addressed: 

  • What causes medication errors
  • How do medication errors differ
  • What are some of the most common medication errors
  • What roles do an agency’s culture and human factors play in medication errors
  • How you can reduce medication errors

Presenters:
Paul Misasi – Quality Manager for Sedgwick County Emergency Medical Service in Wichita, Kansas (Ninth Brain client).

Lee Varner – Patient Safety Director for EMS Services at the Center for Patient Safety.

This webinar will benefit EMS leaders, quality managers, innovators, educators, medical directors, and front-line clinicians. Save your seat today!
