Reducing medication errors in critical care patients: pharmacist key resources and relationship with medicines optimisation.

Bourne RS, Shulman R, Jennings JK. International Journal of Pharmacy Practice. 2018;26.

In this study, pharmacists achieved consensus about how to most effectively reduce medication errors in critical care. They ranked interventions by importance and assessed differences between high-, medium-, and low-resource units. Pharmacists in high-resource units optimized medications more often, though error rates were similar across critical care units studied. A WebM&M commentary reviewed the power of pharmacists to improve medication safety.
