Webinar: High-alert medications—Insulin and vasopressors: Practical strategies in pursuit of safety


Event details

This webinar by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices in the US is aimed at:

  • Pharmacists, physicians, nurses
  • Medication safety officers
  • Quality professionals
  • Risk managers
  • Leaders in pharmacy and nursing
  • Pharmacy and anaesthesia technicians

Although most medications in healthcare today have a wide margin of safety, there remains some which can cause serious harm or death if they are misused. To reduce the risk of error with these “high-alert” medications, special precautions and high leverage strategies should be implemented to avoid serious patient safety events. Many organizations have taken steps to identify these medications, but many are still less than confident that they have taken all the necessary precautions with high-alert drugs against serious patient harm.

Join the ISMP faculty as we examine and define the importance of high alert medications as part of routine patient care and review the results of ISMP’s National Medication Safety Self Assessment® for High-Alert Medications with particular attention to vasopressors and insulin. Faculty will review specific safety characteristics of each these important drug classes, describe self assessment findings related to the use of these medications and discuss the necessary strategies for harm prevention when using these medications.
