Computer-based simulation to reduce EHR-related chemotherapy ordering errors.

Wyatt KD, Freedman EB, Arteaga GM, et al. Cancer Med. 2020;Epub Oct 2.

Chemotherapy medications often have complex dosing which can lead to prescribing errors. This article describes the use of simulation-based training to improve pediatric hematology/oncology providers’ ability to identify and mitigate common chemotherapy ordering errors. The authors suggest that simulation-based training can serve as an alternative to systems-based electronic health record (EHR) improvements.
