Risky Business in Infusion Practice

Ross Koppel, PhD, FACMI CCS
9:00 - 10:00 AM EDT

Infusion nurses often find ways to create short cuts that create at-risk behavior, which inadvertently puts the patient at risk. This session will examine types of at-risk behavior, the reasons behind the behavior, and how to prevent the behavior.

Learning Outcomes

Learners will be able to define behavior that can put patients at risk and understand ways to reduce the risk.


Getting to the Root of the Problem

Pat Baird, MS, MBA, BS
10:00 - 11:00 AM EDT

Root cause analysis is a technique health care organizations use to prioritize the events, hazards, and vulnerabilities in their systems to understand what and why an event has occurred and how to prevent future events and actions to prevent harm. This session will discuss and demonstrate tools and methods used in root cause analysis.

Learning Outcomes

Learners will be able to describe the purpose of root cause analysis and will be able to apply the tools used in root cause analysis.


Quality-Based Outcomes in Infusion Care

Pat Baird, MS, MBA, BS
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM EDT

Quality of care and outcomes measurements are at the heart of all patient care. This session explores ways to plan to meet and exceed quality outcomes within the infusion care system.  

Learning Outcomes

Learners will be able to apply quality techniques for meeting outcomes data, while reducing risk to patients.


How Manufacturers Work to Minimize Patient and Clinician Harm

Pamela Scott, MS
12:30 - 1:30 PM EDT

Manufacturers of drugs and devices for infusion therapy are required to follow the quality principles required by the FDA to bring a drug or device to market. This session will discuss how  manufactures work to minimize harm to  patients and clinicians.

Reducing Risk in the Infusion Care Environment

Elizabeth Rudolph, JD, MSN, RN
