Medication Safety and Medical Resident Supervision

The February issue of AHRQ Web M&M features a Spotlight Case on e-prescribing when a error was noted and cancelled in teh patient record, but not in the pharmacy.

Commentary is provided by Elisa Ashton, PharmD., an assistant clinical professor at the University of California, San Francisco. Perspectives on Safety features an interview with Lawrence Smith, M.D., the founding Dean of Hofstra North Shore-Long Island Jewish School of Medicine, and an expert on the relations between medical training and patient safety. C. Jessica Dine, M.D., M.A., and Jennifer Myers, M.D., assistant professor of medicine and associate professor of medicine, respectively, at the University of Pennsylvania, discuss the ongoing tension between balancing supervision of physician trainees and attaining clinical autonomy.

Physicians and nurses can receive free CME, CEU, or training certification by taking the Spotlight Quiz.
