PIPSQC is pleased to share the Children's Hospitals' Solutions for Patient Safety (SPS) have developed an Adverse Drug Events (ADE) Prevention Roadmap to aid hospitals in significantly reducing pediatric adverse drug events.

The Roadmap is available for download at:
http://www.solutionsforpatientsafety.org/wp-content/uploads/ADE-Prevention-Roadmap_SPS.pdf

BACKGROUND:

The ADE Pioneer Cohort group was formed in June 2014 to determine key strategies and interventions for reducing ADEs given that
ADE was the 8th largest contributor to harm caused across the SPS network. The ADE team has developed a list of medication delivery system interventions that when implemented reliably, and carried out in the context of a comprehensive, integrated medication safety program committed to continuous learning and improvement are highly likely to result in decreased harm to hospitalized children.

SPS OPERATIONAL DEFINITIONS & BUNDLES:

- SPS Operational Definitions: (all HACs)
-
Adverse Drug Events (ADE) Prevention Roadmap
-
SPS Prevention Bundles: (CAUTI; CLABSI; Falls; Pressure Injuries; Readmissions; SSI; VAP; VTE)
