ADE Triple Threat Moving from Awareness to Action
Over our last three webinars, leading experts have presented an in-depth review of ADEs relating to Anticoagulation, Diabetic agents, and Opioid medications, as well as the National Action Plan for Adverse Drug Event Prevention (ADE Action Plan) published by HHS last year. The interest and attendance of our Research Test Bed was overwhelmingly positive and we are pleased to present one capstone webinar that will bring it all together ... both the topics and the experts!
Our experts have generously agreed to lead our webinar in an interactive panel discussion that will focus on moving from awareness of the problem to a tangible action plan from readily available resources.
We are proud to have Dr. Alan Jacobson, from VA Loma Linda, join us again. Dr. Jacobson is a pioneer and leader in the field of anticoagulation management, having implemented innovative strategies within the VA system to improve anticoagulation management and dramatically reducing risk with out-of-range INR and other complications associated with anticoagulation therapy. Joining Dr. Jacobson will be Dr. Gladstone McDowell, Medical Director of Integrated Pain Solutions. Dr. McDowell will speak on the topic of pain management and the use and misuse of opioid medications. He will discuss current strategies to optimize opioid use in the context of the "5 Rights of Pain Care®."
Also speaking will be Dr. Mary Andrawis, PharmD, MPH, Senior Advisor, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid. Dr. Andrawis will address the topic of anti-diabetic agents and the use and misuse of anti-diabetic medications. According to 2010 data from the Medicare Patient Safety Monitoring System (MPSMS) on ADEs, 57 percent nationally are due to hypoglycemic agents. Hypoglycemic agents cause complications in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Dr. Andrawis will discuss current strategies to optimize anti-diabetic agent use in the context of the "Inpatient: Scope of Problem and Challenges." Finally, Leonard Pogach, MD, MBA, FACP, will also be part of the group, providing an overview on "Prevention of Serious Hypoglycemic Events in Outpatient Settings." Dr. Pogach is the National Director of Medicine at Veterans Affairs Central Office, and is a recognized national expert, currently focusing on of large administrative data sets to evaluate ambulatory quality of care, and their impact upon prevention quality indicators among veterans with diabetes.
After the presentations, our speakers will be joined by members of a reactor panel who will discuss the key takeaways with our experts, and will respond to questions from our webinar participants.
