About
Errors involving IV medications can result in significant patient harm, given the immediate bioavailability and narrow therapeutic index of many of the drugs used.

This activity will address the multi-factorial risks associated with IV medications, along with the need for proven safety technologies, practice innovation, and educational strategies to enhance safety in all phases of the medication use process. Expert speakers will describe technologies available to support safe compounding and distribution practices with IV therapy, as well as the value of adopting barcoding technology and smart infusion pumps integrated with the electronic health record (EHR) to promote safe administration at the bedside.
