Adverse Drug Events
The Adverse Drug Events Initiative is designed to work with hospitals to implement standardized best practices around the management of high alert medications.
The goal of the Adverse Drug Events Initiative is:
- To reduce medication errors secondary to high alert medications with a focus on insulin, anticoagulants, and opiates.
NYSPFP approach to reducing Adverse Drug Events:
With guidance from the Nursing Centered Initiatives Workgroup, the Adverse Drug Event Initiative will follow an intensive learning network approach. NYSPFP will provide educational resources and direct support to hospital participants as they implement a bundle of evidence-based practices and interventions to manage high alert medications. Hospital participants will also have the opportunity to learn from peers, sharing best practices and lessons learned through learning sessions and ongoing conference calls and webinars.
The following document outlines our measurement strategy which, along with educational programming, is intended to provide hospitals with meaningful data to inform and help tailor interventions to reduce ADEs.
