DELIRIUM AND MEDICATION RECONCILIATION COLLABORATIVEOctober 2011 – September 2012
Delirium and adverse drug events can have a significant impact on a patient’s life. There is a wealth of research in improving the care of critically ill patients with delirium and on how to prevent adverse drug events. However, healthcare does not always reliably transfer evidence into practice and processes frequently fail despite the best intentions of a dedicated and highly skilled workforce. Our system, which intends to heal, often does just the opposite, leading to unintended harm for patients.
Participation in the Delirium and Medication Reconciliation Collaborative can contribute to the achievement of your delirium and medication reconciliation goals.
This Collaborative brings together teams that share a commitment to making significant and rapid changes to achieve results. It provides the structure, topic expertise and proven methods to create lasting improvement. Participants attend three learning sessions (two virtual sessions plus one face-to-face session) and are supported by expert faculty between sessions.
