Phar­ma­cists re­duce med er­rors in ED

Pharmacy Daily - - NEWS -

PHAR­MA­CISTS and tech­ni­cians re­duced ad­mis­sion med­i­ca­tion history (AMH) er­rors and re­sul­tant ad­mis­sion med­i­ca­tion or­ders (AMO) er­rors by over 80%, ac­cord­ing to new re­search out of the US and Canada.

In a three-arm ran­domised con­trolled trial in­volv­ing 306 in­pa­tients, dif­fer­ent com­bi­na­tions com­par­ing pro­ce­dures around AMHs were com­pared.

AMH er­rors and re­sul­tant AMO er­rors were iden­ti­fied and rated.

Pub­lished in the D:, au­thors of this orig­i­nal work con­cluded that “fu­ture re­search should ex­am­ine other sites and pa­tient-cen­tred out­comes.”
