Improving the Safe Use and Storage of Medications in the Perioperative Setting
A satellite symposium conducted at the Anesthesiology Annual Meeting 2022 in New Orleans, LA.
The live symposium will focus on the daily challenges of ensuring medication safety in the high-risk perioperative setting, including the limited adoption of proven medication safety technologies in these settings. Faculty will focus on the opportunities to advance medication safety principles, and enhance the detection and management of risk. Faculty will describe national aggregate findings and practice gaps identified from the ISMP Medication Safety Self Assessment® for Perioperative Settings, and will highlight published recommendations promoted in the recently released ISMP Guidelines for Safe Medication Use in Perioperative and Procedural Settings. Armed with this unique information, anesthesia residents and fellows will be able to identify targeted approaches to the implementation of safe medication practices for optimal safety outcomes.
Following completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Identify current national safety challenges with medication use in the US perioperative and procedural settings
- Highlight the practice risks discovered in the National results from the ISMP Medication Safety Self Assessment for Perioperative Settings
- Examine recommendations from the ISMP Guidelines for Safe Medication Use in Perioperative and Procedural Settings for meaningful medication safety improvements
- Recognize first-hand successes and challenges faced during the adoption and implementation of safe medication practices, processes, and technologies in perioperative and procedural settings
