Automated Dispensing Cabinets (ADC) provide many benefits to the modern drug dispensing model within a hospital, including unique features that can improve medication safety when used appropriately. ADC medication overrides, while necessary in certain situations, provide a work around for these cabinet safety features. Effective 2018, a new Joint Commission Medication Management standard outlined requirements for institutions to implement a policy regarding medication overrides for automated dispensing cabinets, including reviews of appropriateness of overrides. At our facility, review of medication overrides has identified unforeseen challenges caused by human factors and unique system barriers to full utilization of ADCs potential.

Objectives

  • Identify practices related to safe and appropriate ADC use, including those related to medication overrides, based on accreditation standards and safety guidelines.
  • Recognize unique systems issues and human factors that complicate efforts to improve appropriateness of medication overrides.

Medication take-back programs provide a safe and environmentally friendly method of removing unused and expired prescription medications from the home.  With the ongoing opioid epidemic at the forefront of government public health efforts today, medication take-back programs provide a method to decrease the amount of controlled substances available in the home for misuse and abuse.  Hospitals with an on-site pharmacy are at a unique vantage point to provide patients with an option for safe disposal.  Edward-Elmhurst Health implemented a medication take-back program using on-site collection boxes in January 2019.  The path to the medication take-back program's implementation, beginning with identifying key stake-holders needed for collaboration, will be presented.  Early collection data and day-to-day maintenance operation details are reviewed.  The goal for audience members is to improve knowledge surrounding the provision of medication-take back programs in your own institution after the completion of this education.
 

Objectives

  • Identify the steps of the process of implementing a medication take-back program.
  • Identify key stakeholders for collaboration in order to create and implement a successful medication take-back program.

Opioid Stewardship has become a larger topic within the last few years.  As part, how to have process improvement within a section has not been widely hardwired mainly due to expectations that human vigilance is enough and fear of workarounds.  This presentation looks at general concepts when attempting to hardwire to avoid these pitfalls.

Objectives

  • Identify the most effective error prevention strategy.
  • Predict when a ??work-around????should be proactively identified and guarded against prior to implementation of interventions

Despite a focus on patient safety, medical errors are inevitable.  When a medication error occurs, patients and their families want to know the details of what happened. However, a gap exists between the occurrence and its disclosure to the patient and/or their family. The response of healthcare professionals involved requires a debated, yet important, decision of whether to disclose the error to the patient and how much detail to include. The objective of this presentation is to increase awareness (and hopefully elicit behavior change) as it relates to the proper disclosure of a medication error.  A brief review of recent medical literature and description of results of a nationwide study will be included to further highlight the need to educate pharmacy professionals on how to disclose an error to patients. Using this information, an initial framework for dealing with the disclosure of medication errors will be proposed.  Audience participation will be encouraged via discussion and audience response poll questions.

Objectives

  • Identify what patients want to hear when a medical error occurs.
  • Identify components of a medication error disclosure framework.

The goal of this CPE activity is to provide learners with an understanding of how incorporating a "human factors approach" to event investigation can facilitate learning from errors and support the culture of safety within a department or organization as a whole.   The scope of the activity will focus primarily on how individual tasks (clinical and nonclinical) interact with organizational infrastructure and culture to determine safety.  The perspective taken will be from that of a medication safety professional or pharmacy leader who investigates medication adverse events.

Objectives

  • Identify how hindsight bias limits the ability to learn from system failures.
  • Identify the steps to investigate safety events to reveal goal conflicts.
  • Identify types of goal conflicts that can lead to unsafe practices in healthcare.

Effective  team work is vital to the development of an environment for safe medication use. The utilization of an Escape Room creates a life-life environment that rewards players for working together, discovering clues, solving puzzles, and completing successions of mind-bending tasks in order to ‘escape the room’ in the time allotted.  Published literature has demonstrated how the use of Escape Rooms have increased students’ knowledge after completion of the game. 
 
This 90 minutes presentation will describe what an Escape Room is, how medication safety can be incorporated into a game, and ultimately utilized to improve medication safety.  Participants will then participate in an interactive ‘Escape Room.’

Objectives

  • Define the ways an Escape Room can be utilized to teach and encourage a medication safety culture.
  • Given an Escape Room scenario, identify the medication error.
  • Identify opportunities within one's home practice to incorporate an Escape Room to address medication safety concerns.

A brief overview of the existing literature on medication hoarding will bring participants up-to-date on the topic and its relevance during the opioid epidemic. Presenters will share the Medication Saving Behaviors scale (self-report and family member versions), a new measure with reliability and validity data. This tool can help healthcare practitioners identify high risk patients and target interventions to prevent medication mismanagement. In addition, appropriate communication to patients and caregivers on drug storage and disposal may reduce medication-related risks. 
 
During the first half of this presentation participants will learn about the risks of excessive Medication Saving Behaviors and be able to identify potential problems.  For instance, our research has identified that patients who have more Medication Saving Behaviors also have more adherence problems. During the opioid epidemic, excessive Medication Saving Behaviors provide a supply of medications that may potentially be misused, diverted, or used in a suicide attempt.  When there are children in the home, access to unlocked medications may result in pediatric poisonings.  Therefore, proper use, locked storage, and prompt disposal of risky medications promote medication safety.
 
The second half of the presentation will involve specific examples for small group discussion on best practices for managing medications in the home.  Each participant will rate medication scenarios for usage, storage, and disposal.  Pharmacy students will help facilitate this small group activity, including a discussion of access to necessary medications and other considerations for our families, our patients, and our community.

Objectives

  • List 3 Medication Saving Behaviors-related problems.
  • Classify proper usage, storage, and disposal of sample drugs.
