This meta-analysis examined the efficacy of interventions to improve the safety of medication administration. Researchers looked at studies that used training methods (e.g., simulation) and technology approaches (e.g., computerized physician order entry and automated medication dispensing systems). The authors conclude that more randomized or experimental trials are needed in order to characterize the effect of these interventions, although they acknowledge the increasing implementation of barcode medication administration as a safety strategy.
