A Call to Action: Dedicated Medication Safety Transformation in the Perioperative Setting
In the perioperative setting, medication errors frequently occur in all phases of perioperative care and are a common cause of morbidity and mortality. When medication errors occur, they are often the result of the complexity of care combined with the fast-paced and fragmented nature of perioperative service delivery.

This symposium will focus on the daily challenges of ensuring medication safety in the high-risk perioperative or procedural setting, highlighting the national aggregate findings and practice gaps identified using ISMP's Medication Safety Self Assessment for Perioperative Settings, and providing highlights of the draft consensus best practice statements developed at ISMP's national perioperative summit. This program will discuss challenges faced during the implementation of best practices and advancing technologies in the perioperative setting, as well as resources and plans for addressing these obstacles.

Learning Objectives:
Following completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
1. Identify current national safety challenges with medication management in U.S. perioperative and procedural settings.
2. Highlight the practice risks discovered by inpatient and ambulatory surgical and procedural sites participating in the ISMP Medication Safety Self Assessment for Perioperative Settings.
3. Examine the ISMP best practice guidance draft, action plans, and resources developed for hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers to begin the transformation towards meaningful medication safety improvements.
4. Recognize first-hand barriers and challenges faced during the early adoption and implementation of safe medication practices in perioperative and procedural settings.

This activity is supported by Pfizer.
