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)
