ADE and Opioids

EQIC’s ADE work is designed to help hospitals implement best practices primarily around the management of three high-risk medications: insulin, anticoagulants and opioids. Hospitals’ multidisciplinary teams will be provided with key principles and education on improving medication safety, best practices for safe opioid prescribing and administration and enhancing the involvement of the pharmacist in hospital processes.

Goal: Reduce adverse drug events by 13%, ADEs related to opioids by 7% and opioid prescribing by 12%.
