Effectiveness of Patient-Centered Technology on Medication Errors During Intensive Chemotherapy Treatment
This project will develop, pilot test, and evaluate a patient-centered self-monitoring/documentation system to track the accuracy of dosages and frequency of drug administrations that patients receive during complex, intensive, in-patient chemotherapy treatment regimens in an effort to reduce potential medication administration errors. In addition, the project will record and document patient reported medication reactions and side effects, as well as evaluate patients’ and providers’ (physicians, nurses) opinions and satisfaction with a patient-centered treatment tracking system that is intended to accurately track treatment and reactions, and to prevent potential errors.
