AAMI Foundation and NACNS to Host Seminars on Infusion Therapy Safety

July 07, 2016

The AAMI foundation and National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists have partnered up to provide a series of patient safety seminars online. Each seminar will discuss patient safety issues relating to complex healthcare technology, including infusion therapy.

AAMI Foundation and NACNS to Host Seminars on Infusion Therapy Safety

The first seminar was presented by Mary Kane, RN, MS, vice president and regional chief nursing informatics officer at Catholic Health Initiatives. The talk, entitled “Raising the Bar on Infusion Safety: A Patient Safety Program at Catholic Health Initiatives”, took place on June 24 from 12PM to 1PM EDT. During the seminar, Kane primarily focused on the implementation of an initiative to improve drug library compliance with smart infusion devices.

“Infusion pumps are one of the most widely used technologies in healthcare today, but infusion errors and pump failures can pose serious risks to patients,” said Marilyn Neder Flack, senior vice president of patient safety initiatives and executive director of the AAMI Foundation. “This free seminar promises to be a very interesting window into the challenges and benefits of implementing infusion therapy safety initiatives. These lessons learned can help others identify and implement similar initiatives in their own hospitals.”

Nurses, physicians, project managers, healthcare technology professionals, biomedical and clinical engineers, patient safety managers, and IT specialists are all invited to register for the series of seminars.
