    This Infusion Nurses Society virtual symposium addresses error causation, including the impact of human factors, the hazards within medication preparation and administration, the risk of medication errors with infusion pumps, the effects of an adverse event upon the clinician, and the use of teamwork as a foundation for safety. The propensity of humans to err causes us to continually strive to find ways to minimize errors when infusing medications. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the risk for errors due to staff shortages, concern about exposure to the virus, the emotional and physical stress of providing patient care, and the way patient care is delivered. This program offers new perspectives on preventing patient harm, supporting health care clinicians, and developing organizational safety systems.

    ​The United States is in the midst of the opioid epidemic which has claimed more lives in 2021 than in any previous year. The epidemic is being fueled by potent synthetic opioids and at the same time a rising use of methamphetamine with more dangerous sequelae due to the changes in production. Nurses in all settings will care for individuals who may be experiencing pain but also may be using substances that jeopardize their health. In this session an overview of approaches to pain management will be outlined. The presenter will describe the use of trauma-informed care and harm reduction principles as a basis for providing compassionate care to this vulnerable population.

    Dr. Amy Bardin-Spencer Ed.D, MSc, RRT, VA-BC, FAARC

    I am a member of a dynamic team stretching the boundaries of skill and scope of practice in the name of patient care and positive outcomes. As a proud respiratory therapist and vascular access specialist I really have the best of both worlds. I am able to maintain a passion in my chosen field of respiratory care and advance a scope to increase collaboration among an entire healthcare team to deliver better practice with measurable related outcomes. In the last few years, I have focused on advancing my education, having completed my BS and MS I am now pursuing my PhD. This journey has been amazing and has opened my mind to so many great things. Sticking to my personal moto of “Find your Purpose,” I have truly found mine as both a bedside clinician and a teacher/mentor. 

     My philosophy regarding teaching and mentoring others encompasses the ability to contribute to someone else’s success, through motivation, inspiration and leading by example. Working side by side with individuals or an entire team and finding common practices that exemplify our work and patient outcomes. As a teacher/mentor/leader I believe motivation is important, maintaining a vision and expectation is essential for others success. Inspiring each individual to their maximum potential by seeking qualities within them. I am a leader, leading individuals on my team or in life through a journey of personal experience and contribution, reward, and challenge.

    Infusion nurses play a vital role in inquiry work because they are uniquely able to identify opportunities for improvement in infusion therapy practice or potential patient safety problems. This webinar will provide an overview of inquiry and discuss the differences between the three types of inquiry including evidence-based practice (EBP), quality improvement (QI), and research. The basic evidence-based process will be examined, and participants will be introduced to three common EBP models. Resources to promote infusion nurse participation in inquiry and dissemination will also be explored.
