Medication administration is complex – and so is human behavior

Medication administration is a complex process involving multiple interactions among patients, physicians, pharmacists and nurses. Numerous technologies have been implemented to reduce the risk of medication errors, however, there remains a wide range of human factors that can impact medication administration.

Join the Quality and Safety Department and Dr. Bob Feroli, Medication Safety Officer at Johns Hopkins Hospital on March 7, 2011 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. to understand the mechanisms of human error and learn strategies to utilize safe behaviors and reduce medication errors.

Understanding human behavior is vital to understanding medication errors. Please click here to see a full description of the program and registration information.

    I think this will be an excellent lecture to attend. We can always benefit from learning new ways to think about things! Especially when it comes to medication…..I am definitely attending!

    Dr. Feroli spoke to my Phamacology class, way back when I was a nursing student at Hopkins. Everyone told me it would be a great lecture–which I did not believe for a second. But I still remember really enjoying that engaging lecture, and even learning something! Good to see he has gone on to great things. I’m going to try to attend this lecture…
