Preventing Medication Errors Through Patient Education explores the state of medication errors in the U.S., why they occur, and how healthcare workers can help prevent them. All arenas of the healthcare system—the federal government, nurses, physicians, and pharmacists—have addressed the issue and continue to focus on new and innovative ways to keep patients safe. Most importantly, this course focuses on patients themselves, the greatest allies nurses have in the effort against medication errors.
