Medication Errors is the most comprehensive, authoritative examination of the causes of and means to preventing medication errors in print. It helps readers understand the system-based causes of medication errors, including pharmaceutical trademarks, drug packaging and labeling, and error-prone abbreviations and dose expressions, as well as the patient's role in preventing medication errors. The book also examines prevention of medication errors in relation to specific medications, patients, and conditions; reduction of risk and creation of a just culture of safety through medication error reporting systems; disclosure of medication errors to patients; risk analysis and treatment; and the clinical bioethics of safe medication practices. Available on Pharmacy Library.

About the Author:

Michael R. Cohen, BPharm, MS, ScD, President, Institute for Safe Medication Practices, Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania. Foreword by David W. Bates, MD, Chief, Division of General Internal Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts

Review:

This book is unique in the field. It should be a mandatory read for all pharmacy students and is certainly a valuable addition to any academic, industrial, or personal library. --Thomas Jacobsen, PharmD GlaxoSmithKline

Cohen's book better describes specific medication errors and how to prevent them. The centerpiece is an excellent chapter on 'high-alert medications,' which Cohen defines as drugs with a high risk of causing patient injury or death if they are misused; the chapter includes a comprehensive table of safety measures for various drug classes. --New England Journal of Medicine August 9, 2007
