Bundle interventions used to reduce prescribing and administration errors in hospitalized children: a systematic review.

Bannan DF, Tully MP. Journal of clinical pharmacy and therapeutics. 2016;41:246-55.

Many successful patient safety programs involve the use of bundled interventions. For example, the seminal Keystone ICU project combined a checklist with regular data audit and feedback and efforts to improve safety culture. This systematic review of bundled interventions to prevent prescribing errors and medication administration errors in hospitalized children characterized several types of approaches. The authors ultimately determined that the poor quality of existing literature precludes conclusions about effectiveness.
