Serious medication errors occur in 3.8 million inpatient admissions each year, according to a new infographic by Sentri7.

The infographic reviews how medication errors and adverse drug events affect patients and hospitals.

A clinical pharmacist-driven medication management effort at Novant Health identifies patients at high-risk for readmissions or ED visits related to adverse drug events. Using a combination of medication reconciliation, pharmacotherapy review, and patient education, Novant Health’s clinical pharmacists are working to reduce preventable readmissions by optimizing medication regimens and removing barriers to adherence among these high-risk patients.

During Medication Management: Using Clinical Pharmacists To Complete Comprehensive Drug Therapy Management Post Discharge in High-Risk Patients, a 45-minute webinar on February 3rd at 1:30 p.m. Eastern, Rebecca Bean, director, population health pharmacy, Novant Health, will share her organization’s medication management approach and why a clinical pharmacist is key to the program’s success.
