Course Description
While much emphasis has been placed on the improvement of IV infusion safety, there remains limited published information on safe practices associated with IV push injection safety. Recent ISMP insight has revealed significant risk associated with the preparation and administration of IV push medications. At this symposium, experts will address the variability of practice with IV push medication use, including unnecessary unit-based preparation and dilution and unsafe injection practices, highlighting strategies necessary for the mitigation of risk. A new gap analysis tool will be presented that can be used by organizations to align best practices.
