Opioids are one of the medication classes included in ISMP’s list of high-alert medications, which are drugs that bear a heightened risk of causing significant harm when used in error. Morphine and HYDROmorphone are both commonly used, yet remain among the most frequent opioids to cause patient harm. This webinar will explore the latest trends in opioid therapy, barriers to optimal therapy and safety, and preventable errors that involve opioids. Expert speakers will discuss the latest safety considerations for these commonly-used agents, including a surprising discussion regarding the safe use of HYDROmorphone.
The target audience for this activity includes Nurses, Pharmacists, Clinical educators, Pain teams, Pharmacy and nursing managers and administrators, Medication safety and patient safety officers, Risk and quality managers, and Hospital and health system leadership.
