About this course

A recent survey demonstrated that <20% of pharmacists surveyed participated in research. However, direct experience with this process is vital for clinicians in the provision of evidence-based care. Furthermore, many principles of this method are required for pharmacists in all settings in that quality improvement is a core job function of many pharmacists. Practical pearls to make the process more user-friendly, efficient, and productive can reduce barriers to this important activity. This activity includes their direct application to pharmacist’s daily practice as well as providing general knowledge and review. Discussion of common barriers and strategies to overcome them are included.

I really loved this information. I was hospitalized last year for almost a month and I noticed multiple medical errors (not being hooked up to my IV multiple times, given wrong medication which caused my sodium to be very low, etc.) which lengthened my stay. I can now define those exact errors and better understand what happened to me. I hate that these medical errors are so common and I appreciate how well laid out your breakdown and categorization of them was.
