Prakash V, Koczmara C, Savage P, et al. BMJ quality & safety. 2014;23:884-92.

This study used high-fidelity simulation to evaluate the impact of several interventions on preventing medication administration errors by chemotherapy nurses. Interventions with a basis in human factors engineering principles appeared to be highly effective at reducing errors related to interruptions.
