Description

Medication ordering errors resulting from duplicate orders are a threat to patient safety. To design an effective and sustainable solution to intercept and recover from duplicate ordering errors, we need to gain an in-depth understanding of the root contributors of medication order duplication. In this abstract, we present our findings from a qualitative prospective study that investigated clinician-intercepted duplicate ordering errors and their root contributors.

Learning Objective 1: To examine duplicate ordering errors intercepted by clinicians using the medication void function in the CPOE (Computerized Provider Order Entry) system.

Learning Objective 2: To analyze clinician-reported reasons for duplicate ordering errors and their root contributors.
