More than a decade ago, the introduction of smart infusion pumps with dose error‐reduction software systems (DERS) launched an era of dramatic improvements in infusion safety. Smart infusion pumps have allowed for a greater level of control, accuracy, and precision with drug delivery. Despite their significant role in advancing medication safety, there are still opportunities to further optimize their use in order to prevent adverse events.
This webinar will present perspectives from engineering, patient safety and quality, nursing and pharmacy professionals for optimizing use of infusion pumps. Error reduction strategies will be discussed as well as recommendations from the 2018 ISMP Summit on the Use of Smart Infusion Pumps.
