Bundle interventions used to reduce prescribing and administration errors in hospitalized children: a systematic review.
Bannan DF, Tully MP. J Clin Pharm Ther. 2016;41:246-255.
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.

The contribution of prescription chart design and familiarity to prescribing error: a prospective, randomised, cross-over study.
Tallentire VR, Hale RL, Dewhurst NG, Maxwell SR. BMJ Qual Saf. 2013;22:864-869.
The discovery of a high medication prescribing error rate among physician trainees in the United Kingdom led to recommendations for developing a standardized prescription chart for hospitalized patients. This study found that both individual physician factors as well as the design of the prescription chart appeared to influence prescribing error rates.
