Clinical Pharmacist's Role in Medication Error Detection and Management
Asian Journal of Medical Principles and Clinical Practice,
Medication errors (MEs) are a significant issue that can jeopardize treatment quality and patient safety while also instilling distrust in the system, organization, and experts' work. MEs are a complicated problem. They can arise at any point throughout the medication development process and are linked to a variety of healthcare professionals. Medication errors are a serious medical problem. However, the language connected with these beliefs may be puzzling even at the most basic level, and the influence on individuals and communities is sometimes understated.
When an error is detected, patients want immediate disclosure, in-person disclosure, an apology, and a discussion of steps to prevent future problems. Learning more about drug mistakes may help health care workers give their patients with safer therapy.
