to

This session will provide guidance to assess an organization’s medication-use processes for vulnerabilities and identify strategies that may improve the capacity to prevent or detect diversion. Speakers will discuss known diversion cases, vulnerabilities in the medication use process, literature, case studies, guidelines, as well as their personal experiences. They will review a recent study that quantified the drug and workforce waste cost and discuss the use of healthcare technologies as a mechanism to reduce the opportunity for diversion. Thorough system-based strategies that can broaden an organization’s response to diversion beyond that of individual accountability will be reviewed.
