Medication errors are the most common type of medical errors in healthcare. Adverse drug events (ADEs) account for 30% of all hospital-acquired conditions, most of which are preventable. The U.S Dept. of HHS has set a goal to reduce ADEs by 50% to combat this issue. TJC and CMS take medication management seriously, dedicating resources to improve this area of healthcare through education and regulations.
This program will cover CMS and TJC standards on medication management, including TJC’s chapter on medication management, CoPs on medication, and recent tag changes on medication administration.
