Preventing Iatrogenic Overdose: A Review of In–Emergency Department Opioid-Related Adverse Drug Events and Medication Errors

Earn CME credit while reading the #1 journal in your specialty. Annals CME is designed for emergency physicians who want to learn about the latest emergency medicine advances and how they apply to patient care. Each month the CME Editor chooses one journal article for the activity. Participants take a pretest to establish a baseline score, then read and study the selected article, then take a post-test to measure improvement in cognitive expertise. And because Annals of Emergency Medicine is a benefit of ACEP membership, there is no additional charge for Annals CME for members.

 

When you finish reading and studying this month’s Annals CME article, you’ll be able to:

  • Identify the consequences of iatrogenic opioid adverse drug events.
  • Describe patient, provider, and systems-based factors that may contribute to iatrogenic opioid adverse drug events, and potential strategies for risk-reduction.
  • Discuss limitations of the current study.

 

 

When you purchase or use any ACEP eCME activity, you agree to abide by the ACEP eCME Terms of Service.
