Description

Radiology departments often use medications in ways that are different from other clinical areas of the hospital, which presents a unique set of challenges. Pharmacists and Radiologic Technologists may not always be aware of the significant safety issues that can arise or their role in promoting safe medication use in this setting. This activity will educate participants on how medications are administered in radiology and the unique devices and techniques employed in the use of contrast. Speakers will describe actual errors that have been reported as well as how to implement effective risk-reduction strategies, including steps that can be taken to ensure compliance with current regulatory and accreditation standards. A nationally recognized hospital pharmacist will describe the role of the pharmacy in working with radiology to improve medication use.
