Live, In-Person CME/CE Program for Physicians, Nurses, and Allied Health Professionals
The objective of this program is to familiarize health care professionals with performance improvement techniques, and processes that will have a positive impact on improving medication safety and significantly reducing medical errors. These improvements and easy-to-implement strategies are introduced by nationally renowned physician / speaker Arnold Mackles. Dr. Mackles has addressed medical audiences throughout the United States and his message is timely, effective, and his presentation style engaging and motivating. His programs are supported by highly credible references from well-respected CME and health care professionals.
11 Strategies to Reduce Medication Errors covers healthcare scenarios that have particularly high rates of medication errors and provides physicians and health care professionals with specific strategies to measurably improve patient safety and avoid common mistakes. Topics include:
- The Prevalence and Impact of Medication Errors
- Improving the Medication Delivery System
- Joint Commission Sentinel Event Alerts Concerning Medications
- Specific Strategies for Medication Error Reduction and Prevention
- Efficacy of Computer Provider Order Entry / Bar Code Medication Administration Systems
Dr. Mackles conducted a well presented and interesting lecture on the topic of Prevention of Medical Errors for our Medical Staff. The evaluations from our Medical Staff Members were very positive and the physicians gained better insight into techniques and methods for reducing / eliminating unnecessary medical errors. In the future, we would be glad to welcome him back to assist us in providing continuing education for our Medical Staff. Medical Error Prevention is an important subject and by having a physician who has” been there and done that” facilitate the presentation; it gives a much higher level of credibility to his peers. A strong program that I highly recommend.
