Preceptor for: Medication Use Safety, Pediatric Medication Safety

Rotation Description:

The Department of Pharmacy Medication Safety team has hospital wide responsibility for identifying and helping to resolve medication use system flaws that endanger patients. System flaws are identified by reviewing reported medication errors, proactively evaluating medication use systems, reviewing the literature for reports of errors that have occurred elsewhere and by searching for, and implementing, best practices.During this learning experience, the learner will work closely with the Medication Safety Officer and the medication safety team to gain experience with various methodologies used to measure medication-use safety, participate in the application of technologies that improve the medication-use process, learn and apply methods to promote a culture of safety, analyze complex systems to identify and correct system flaws, develop effective communication techniques and understand the many human-factors that impact the safety of patient care.

While the incidence of medication variance is similar for hospitalized pediatric patients when compared to adult patients, according to one study potential ADEs (errors that don't reach the patient but have the potential to cause harm) occurred three times more often in the pediatric population. This increased risk for patient harm is due in part to the complex factors that influence medication use within pediatrics. The Department of Pharmacy's Medication Safety team has hospital wide responsibility for identifying and helping to resolve medication use system flaws that endanger patients. During this longitudinal rotation the Pediatric pharmacy resident will work closely with the Pharmacy Medication Safety Officer, Pediatric Clinical Specialists, and Children's Hospital leadership to gain experience with various methodologies used to evaluate medication-use safety practices, participate in the application of technologies that improve the medication-use process, learn and apply methods to promote a culture of safety, and analyze complex systems to identify and correct system flaws. The resident will assist with reviewing medication events and participate as a member of the NC Children's Hospital Medication Safety Committee.
