Product Details

Effective and safe treatment of patients in pain can be challenging. Neonates are a particularly challenging group of patients for safe use of medications. Medication errors can occur during prescribing, transcribing, dispensing, administering or monitoring of drugs. Yet, healthcare providers often receive little training in the proper use of controlled prescription drugs. This presentation will provide an overview of safe prescribing and administration practices, as well as safety interventions to reduce errors, regarding common controlled substances utilized for the NICU population. 

Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss principles of safe prescribing of controlled substances.
  2. Review commonly prescribed controlled substances for NICU population.
  3. Discuss safety interventions to reduce dosing errors in the NICU.
