"This article was first published in the Winter 2023 issue of Critical Connections.

The Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) Drug Shortages and Medication Safety Committee was fortunate to represent SCCM at the Institute for Safe Medication Practices’ (ISMP) two-day workshop in August 2022. One of the workshop’s key themes was that human error can never be eliminated, but well-designed, redundant systems can be created to prevent those errors from reaching patients. In times of crisis or emergency, risk of errors may be heightened, and a proactive approach is essential for error reduction.

Critical Connections, the critical care industry's only magazine, provides information on cutting-edge topics in critical care useful to the entire multiprofessional team."
